The very young age is the big clue, for autism is a lifelong condition. Asperger's syndrome is a type of autism, but that name has now been dropped from diagnostic manuals. It varies enormously between different people, but one thing we all have in common is sensitivities of many kinds, which make us easily stressed. Others are difficulty dealing with people, intense (often unusual) interests and a dislike of change. There are many other traits too, but they're not shared by all autistic people.
Anxiety, depression, OCD, etc. commonly come with it, and that's due to high stress levels. Any diagnosis needs information on what you were like as a child. Often it gets noticed at school, but when 'mild' it can be missed which leads to problems later.
ope that helps
