With me, I was originally diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder when I was really, really young, and then was diagnosed with Aspergers in 8th grade. I can say from experience that having a social disability doesn't change your personality one bit, so I've done a lot of work on myself personally instead of just focusing on my speech. I never regret my changes one bit. I wish there are more Aspies who are willing to work themselves personally in a mirror and take the motivation to better themselves as a person. Chris Chan, for example. Bless his heart, but he's got a really long way to go; imagine a kid with autism being raised by a narcissistic parent. It never ends well.
