Aspergers is on the Autism Spectrum. I'm not quite sure why your friends are telling you to have a doctor change his diagnosis...since Aspergers is just a type of Autism.

The treatment (depending on what you choose) is pretty much the same.

If you have the means, order the book "Straight Talk on Autism" from and read that. It's an excellent book.

Good luck and hang in there. You're not alone.
