I suspect I am also very slightly autistic as well and so any symptoms which I can remember could be laid at the door of either. Discovering the existence of asphantasia was actually quite a huge relief for me as I then knew that there was a reason for me being the way I am!
Interesting that you say that. I have Asperger's, as well as having aphantasia, and I have wondered about possible correlations. As far as I have seen in discussions on Asperger forums there doesn't seem to be any striking propensity for aphantasia amongst people with Asperger's or ASD. But I have never seen any discussion of whether there might be a propensity for Asperger's or ASD amongst people with aphantasia.
