    The only clinical differences between HFA and Asperger's syndrome diagnostically is that for Asperger's there must have been no delay in language development,

    and that for Asperger's the requirement is a normal or above average IQ, while for HFA this doesn't have to be true.

    The "High Functioning" part of HFA is not principally a reference to intelligence, but to the ability to perform in day-to-day living tasks.

    It is quite possible to have Asperger's and have quite markedly *more* difficulty in everyday living than someone with HFA.

    In this respect it is quite wrong to think of Asperger's as "mild autism" or "autism lite."

    Your listed traits fit either diagnosis.

    I have Asperger's syndrome: because I was an early talker, basically.
