Abstract

The family history method was used to obtain developmental, social, and psychiatric histories on the 67 adult siblings of 37 autistic probands. Two of 67 siblings (3.0%) were autistic, three siblings (4.4%) had severe social dysfunction and isolation, 10 (15%) had cognitive disorders, and 10 (15%) had received treatment for affective disorder. This study is the first to investigate the frequecy of disorders in the adult siblings of autistic probands. These results suggest aggregation of a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders in the siblings of autistic individuals.
