In brief: Clinically

Asperger syndrome, like autism, is diagnosed by clinical observation and feedback from family and teachers.
There is no link to vaccines and parenting style does not cause asperger or autism. Look for behavioral aspects; a strange fascination with mundane objects, stereotyped or ritualistic movements, or a lack of social interaction.
