Szatmari, P.; Jones, M. B.; Zwaigenbaum, L.; MacLean, J. E.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v28 n5 p351-68 Oct 1998
This paper reviews current knowledge of the genetic epidemiology of autism and other pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs). It notes widespread agreement that the PDDs are caused, at least in part, by genetic factors and some agreement on the phenotypic boundaries associated with these same genetic factors. Remaining research issues are identified. (DB)
