Should we do an Asperger Syndrome class for 5th graders?

My 11 year old son has high functioning Asperger Syndrome and I have been approached by his Special Services teacher asking me and another mom to give a speech to the 5th grade class trying to explain AS to the 5th graders in his class. I'm on the fence because my son really wants me to do it but I'm afraid that he will become more of an outcast if I do do it. As anyone with AS knows the social aspect of this disease is disheartening and I really want to help my son in any way that I can but I'm just not sure about this. Please let me know your thoughts on the subject. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Joyce
