New podcast examines the broader autism phenotype in siblings

Published August 4, 2016

Siblings of individuals with autism, and sometimes parents, can show mild features of autism that don’t meet ASD diagnostic criteria.  This is called the broader autism phenotype.  Sometimes they also show emotional and behavior problems, ADHD, tic disorder and an autism diagnosis. This week’s podcast summaries new findings on the broader autism phenotype with the goal of making sure it isn’t turned into a disorder itself.  Also – as a special treat, highlights from the DUP15 meeting in Maryland this past week.  Listen to this week’s ASFpodcast here:  http://asfpodcast.org/?p=229
