It is a matter of terminology. They used to say that Asperger's was a type of Autism, but now they say it is an Autism Spectrum Disorder. They also say that "Autism" is an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and I have been told that ADHD is on the Autism Spectrum as well. The word "Spectrum" reflects the broad range in which autism can be manifested.
