Could "Assortive Mating" Explain Autism?

clm1970 (1728766) writes | more than 3 years ago


clm1970 writes "Researcher Simon Barone-Cohen has put forth the theory that "how we mate and marry" could explain the increase in rates of Autism Spectrum Disorders particularly Aspergers. When two technically minded people marry and have children, so the provocative theory goes, they are more apt to produce a child who crosses the line into mild autism."
