I didn't watch all the videos, but I agree that this seems like primer stuff. There are no conclusions that he arrived at by himself, and nothing aproaching the higher mathematics in Good Will Hunting.
Hell, I gave a class presentation on General Relativity in the 7th grade, and here I am 20+ years later trading gay sex joaks with Kwilk on the internets.
I will say that if he does have Asperger's, it doesn't seem particularly apparent to me. He sounds like a regular 12-year-old boy to me, and isn't droney or inexpressive like many Asperger's kids.
