As the parent of an adult son with Asperger's syndrome, I don't think it matters to him (and certainly not to me) what you call his "disorder". I know many people with Asperger's syndrome, including my son, who are successful in relationships and in work,and in most cases, their friends and coworkers aren't even aware they are considered to be "disabled" at all! I'd like to add that I think we spend way too much time putting labels on things, and not enough time getting to know people who are different from ourselves.
