ASD & schizotypal-overlap and differences?

At my last meeting with the Nurse practitioner at my old address she mentioned autism in relation to things I told her and gave me a sheet about a local autism charity. However she also said that things might be explained by schizotypal.

I am wondering what people think about the overlap and differences between ASD and schizotypal. How many have gone in for an ASD assessment to be told they are schizotypal? How many are seen as being both ASD and schizotypal ?

I accept that (a)not many here may be schizotypal (b) this may be beyond the remit of the forum. That having been said would welcome your experiences and thoughts.

I think there are many differences both in the symptoms and in the onset.

before sz diagnosis I was diagnosed schizotypal…
