I know they say it's on the spectrum but would you say that a child who has this is autistic?

No, if you say anything at all, you say they have aspergers.

My son has Aspergers and most times I will simply say he has Autism. Most people do not know the word Aspbergers but recognize the word Autism, and alot of times I just do not feel like going into a detailed explanation (with strangers and people who do not know my son) of Aspbergers and that it is part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder... and get the quizzical 'huh?' looks from people who do not understand.
