There is strong evidence that autism and asperger's disorder have genetic component, and it certainly is possible to "skip generations, " so a child with a grandparent who has such a diagnosis is at increased risk. We don't know, though, what genes are involved, let alone if they are mutations. Read more...

It is possible to be the contributor of (at most 1/4 total)genes that might contribute to certain symptom patterns. Read more...
