In brief: Big

Dysphasia/aphasia is an expressive language disorder. It means you can't find the words you need when you need them. In autism spectrum disorders, the communication deficit is in all areas - receptive, expressive, pragmatic, and nonverbal communication.
It also includes social deficits and repetitive behaviors.
