From High Intellectual Potential to Asperger Syndrome: Evidence for Differences and a Fundamental Overlap—A Systematic Review
HIP seems to cover different developmental profiles, one of which might share features with ASD, which require further study, and a new line of investigation providing a possible starting-point for future research is proposed.
Overlap of autistic and schizotypal traits in adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Findings indicate that patients diagnosed with an ASD show schizophrenia spectrum traits in adolescence, and add to the literature that behavioral overlap is not limited to negative schizotypal symptoms, but extends to disorganized and positive symptoms as well.

The Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ): Evidence from Asperger Syndrome/High-Functioning Autism, Malesand Females, Scientists and Mathematicians
The Autism-Spectrum Quotient is a valuable instrument for rapidly quantifying where any given individual is situated on the continuum from autism to normality, and its potential for screening for autism spectrum conditions in adults of normal intelligence remains to be fully explored.
Prevalence of disorders of the autism spectrum in a population cohort of children in South Thames: the Special Needs and Autism Project (SNAP)
Prevalence of autism and related ASDs is substantially greater than previously recognised and services in health, education, and social care will need to recognise the needs of children with some form of ASD, who constitute 1% of the child population.
The Adult Asperger Assessment (AAA): A Diagnostic Method
