I have heard that people with Asperger syndrome have a problem with the right brain, but it increases the ability of the left brain. In other words, AS people has two left brains; the second left brain replaces the right brain. Is this true?

Most neuroscientists have dropped the right brain-left brain differentiation because cross-over of functions at multiple levels is now so widely recognized. So your understanding of two left brains is not current (if it ever was).
