Yeates-Frederikx, M. H. M.; Nijman, H.; Logher, E.; Merckelbach, H. L. G. J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n3 p257-62 Jun 2000
Birth data for 1,031 Dutch patients with autism were compared to those of the national population. Separate analyses were performed on diagnostic subgroups (i.e., infantile autism vs. other psychoses with origin specific to childhood), gender, and intelligence. No evidence was found that autism is characterized by a deviant birth pattern. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
