I am for joining the two diagnosis if those with Asperger's will receive more benefits. My brother has Asperger's. He is 18 and graduating from high school this year. He has received some special care through the school district he is in. My main concern is that he does not qualify for certain benefits, such as worker training skills and training for living on his own. He can likely live on his own because he is high functioning, but he needs job skills. His math level will stay at a fourth grade level, but he is very intellegent in other ways. I wish there were more pograms available for those becoming adults. Once he is done with school there really are not many options available to him.
