The dev ped diagnosed DS1 with high functioning autism spectrum disorder because he has impairments in communication and social interactions, and has restricted or repetitive activities or interests. She says he currently functions more like a child with Asperger's. But, she didn't diagnose him with Asperger's because his early language wasn't normal. He went through a period between ages 1 and 2 when he lost a lot of words that he had been saying, and didn't speak any new words. He started learning new words again at 23 months. She said that blip in his language acquisition was the only thing that kept her from diagnosing Asperger's, but that his symptoms appear more like Asperger's.
