Parents of Children with Autism Less Likely to Have More Kids

Parents of children with autism sometimes decide not to have more children after their first child is diagnosed or shows signs of the disorder, a new study suggests.Researchers analyzed information from about 19,700 families that had a child with autism between 1990 and 2003, and about 36,200 families that had a child who did not have autism in this same time period. The researchers examined the chances that each family went on to have more children over a 15-year period (between 1990 and 2005).
