Google Autism - there are sites which have lists of signs of Autism/ Aspergers, then you could see if your son has any other symptoms.

If you feel that it could be Aspereges than go and have him tested by a specialist. Most of the time parents know their children better than doctors. We knew our daughter was autistic by the time she was 9 months old. I took her to the doctor and they looked at us like we were crazy and tried to tell us she was just delayed. We took her to see a specialist 2 months later and she was diagnosed. Trust your instinct. It doesn't hurt to have him tested. Good Luck!
