My younger brother was diagnosed with Asperger's a few years ago, he had been previously diagnosed with ADD. He has struggled throughout his life with school and just staying organized in general. However, his condition is far from what I would consider Autism. He is very inteligent, definitley well above average and I dont think it is fair to classify these people as autistic which insinuates a mental disability. He is very successful in his career and I fear that if he were considered Autistic the perception of his talents and abilities might be unfairly skewed.
