Just found out that a relative of mine has autism. He's 13 and lives in Denmark. It's a distant cousin but the line from my Maternal G'mother is the same. She had a sister who had a daughter who had a daughter who had a son who has autism. Could be a coincidence but I am guessing not as Mikko definately looks like that side of the family - he's my little scandi viking Smile
So there we go, can blame my Mother Laughing Laughing

I have no one diagnosed in my family, but my Nan, who is just passed off as eccentric, definitely has all the characteristics of someone on the spectrum. Jon's family have something going on...not sure what.

Interesting huh?!

Also Christopher doesn't look like the other two kids. In fact Max and Eden, half siblings, look more facially similar than Christopher.

I have family on both sides that have been diagnosed as autistic. One is 21 years old, and she was the first that I ever heard of with autism. The other is around 19? And I can't be sure if he is autistic as I have never really heard it officially (he lives overseas).

I can't say if DD1 looks like either of them! I do believe it is hereditary/genetic. I would say that I have some ASD tendancies!!
