Handedness in Autistic Children and Their Families. Brief Report.
Tsai, Luke Y.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v12 n4 p421-23 Dec 1982
Questionnaires completed by 83 families of autistic children (5-23 years old) revealed that significantly more autistic children were non-right-handers than either their siblings or their parents. Findings suggest that increased mixed- and left-handedness in autistic persons is not due to inheritance. (CL)
