Maternal Health in Pregnancy and Autism Risk - Genetic and Non-genetic Mechanisms

This study will systematically identify maternal diagnoses in pregnancy associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in offspring; test if the association between maternal diagnoses and ASD is due to shared genetic factors using family data; and test the association between maternal diagnoses in pregnancy and child’s genetic liability for ASD.
