It seems, at least to me, that the "Management" section is almost exclusively written from a point of view that it is a disease, which, as far as I know should be given an equal amount of respect to the just-as-well-publicised idea that it is not, which is definitely inappropriate for a featured article (although I know that that is the prevailing view, the section seems to have no mention of the other view at all). Particular quotes of concern:
"While most professionals agree that the earlier the intervention, the better, there is no single best treatment package." has some WP:WEASEL issues "Most professionals"
"No medications directly treat the core symptoms of AS". Especially "Directly treat".
"it is essential to diagnose and treat comorbid conditions"
"have been effective in treating restricted and repetitive interests and behaviors."
"Despite the popularity of social skills training, its effectiveness is not firmly established."
I should probably say that I have asperger myself and so am biased in this argument, however the issue still stands. [UsernameNeeded] 11:31, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Article claims "it is probably partly inherited", but admits that "the underlying genetics have not been determined conclusively". Arguably, it has only been suggested by some researchers that it is "partly inherited". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:54, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

I don't have an edit, but I do have an addition to the "Asperger Syndrome" page. I have Aspergers and I feel I'd like to contribute the following:
People with AS are sometimes unable to understand senses, for example, cold, pain or thirst. Thirst is a "strange feeling" that can be satisfied by drinking water. Extreme boredom can be described as a cold feeling. Often have specialized interests and can excel in that interest. For example, one person might love a certain kind of animal and work well with them. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:03, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Not done For the encyclopedia, discussion of these symptoms and sensations needs to be sourced to -- and supported with substantial evidence in -- a high-quality review in a reputable medical publication, according to WP:MEDRS. From a quick check of the medical review literature, I didn't find such a review. --Zefr (talk) 15:56, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
There is an ongoing discussion about person-first vs. identity-first language at the Autism article talk page. Interested editors are invited to participate. --Wikiman2718 (talk) 19:54, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
