Autism diagnosis - also learning disability ?

My 13 year old son is diagnosed ASC (auspergers as was). He is year nine in class but working in most subjects at year 10. At his parents evening all his class test results were betwern 25 - 40%. At home he is clueless as to how to do any of his class work or homework. Could this be part of his ASC or should I be pushing for ed. Psych intervention for possible learning disabilities. Tia.
