R children with autism, they might take the first step like all other children, but the first word and emotional communication might be a long way off. In some cases, it may never come.

The journey is different for a child with Aspergers disorder. The first word may be early, followed by an explosion of language.
autism , they also have a below average IQ. Whereas people with Asperger syndrome tend to have an average or above average IQ, and they start speaking within the expected age range.

Main difference u will see aspergers may have superb vocabulary but unable to use it in social situations,on other hand keep on conversing in his/her favorite topic and are fixated,whereas it is not the case is asd

Asperger's is part of the autism spectrum. It's pretty much the same as high-functioning autism; the main difference is that people with Asperger's don't have a speech delay. You'll need to research both. But since there is so much overlap, it won't mean doing a lot of extra work, like if you had to research two entirely different disorders.

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome or Asperger disorder, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical (peculiar, odd) use of language are frequently reported
