Q:

Could these fits mean asbergers?

my niece has spina bifida and has been very spoiled thoughout the years. she is now 8 and her fits are becoming worse. I am begining to think that there is more to it than fits. I am wondering about aspergers and the best way of finding out the difference. The fits are not about any one thing they just happen and she seems to have little control of herself during them. We have started keeping a log of the things taking place when the fits occur, but have no pattern yet it, we have just started keeping tract. CAn anyone offer some insight, we are trying to decide the difference and want to get her the help she needs if infact it is more than just a spoiled kid fit,

Having your niece's parents speak to her pediatrician about this question and their (and your) concerns is very important. For this situation, getting in-person consultations by licensed medical professionals who specialize in spina bifida, autism spectrum disorders and childhood health is going to be far better than any diagnosis or advice you would receive via an online forum.
