In brief: Asperger Syndrome

You can not diagnose asperger syndrome by delayed motor development.
It is a develepmental disorder, in which the physical and motor development is usually normal.

In brief: Not closely linked

Although many individuals with asperger's disorder have some problems with motor coordination, it is not at all one of the criteria used to make the diagnosis.
Moreover, the vast majority of chidlren with gross- and fine-motor coordination delays have no form of autism at all.
