My half brother has severe autism, and was diagnosed at age 5. We do not have the same birth father. Is there any evidence to suggest that autism is passed down genetically through the father?
Any words of support or feedback would be nice. It has been very difficult for me to plan to have a child with my Mother constantly discouraging my husband and I saying that it is very likely that I will have a child with Autism. My husband's family has no history of Autism.
