    If you had a "clinically significant" delay in language acquisition as a child, you have HFA. If you didn't, you have Asperger's.

    Some studies have found that all forms of Autism except Asperger's have deficiencies in the neurotransmitter GABA whereas Asperger's have the same levels as Neurotypicals. This has been used by some to indicate Asperger's should not be considered part of the Autism Spectrum.
