DS160 - juvenile convictions as a result of high functioning autism

Hi, I have a number of juvenile convictions (from 6 years ago) which stemmed directly from my late diagnosis of autism and the lack of support I received - it is no excuse but it had a direct link as it affected my neurological development. However now I have developed and matured and I have not committed any offences. Should I include this in the DS160 question regarding convictions? My concern is a consular officer may not be aware that autism isnt a mental health condition, and they may incorrectly refuse me on this basis. I also worry I would be denied a visa as they may think I pose an ongoing risk, but this is not the case. My convictions were relatively minor in nature aswell
