What are my chances of having an autistic child?
- POSTED ON Friday, September 21, 2018
In general, the risk of having a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is about 1 in 68, or 1.5%. But the risk goes up to approximately 20% for families who already have a child with ASD. If a family has one child with ASD, the chance of the nextchild having ASD is about 15%.
