Stoppage Rules and Genetic Studies of Autism.
Jones, Marshall B.; Szatmari, Peter
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n1 p31-40 Mar 1988
"Stoppage rules" (responses of parents to the question of having more children when a child has been born seriously handicapped) are discussed. The paper shows that application of stoppage rules to a recent study of 46 families shows that the segregation ratio was underestimated in the original report. (Author/DB)
