I am currently at college and for my final project I am researching and collecting information to the above question.
I am a mum of 2 children, my first child was born with the assistance of forceps and ventuse, he was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and Dyspraxia at the age of 4 years old, I am now investigating if there is a link.
Please can I ask all parents to complete my short questionnaire via survey monkey by clicking the link below. You will remain anonymous and it will only be seen by my college tutors. I would be very grateful for your help.
Many Thanks

I have filed it it. Autism doesn't develop during/after birth.

I've filled it in but some of the responses needed more than one answer that it wouldn't accept
I have 3 children with ASD. The eldest arrived with no intervention, so much so the he made his was into the world with my partner catching him ( midwives were having a cuppa!) second had assistance and 3rd was a c section.

I think the it is more likely to be a genetic correlation as both my boyfriend and I also have ASDsmile

Non of the spectrumy people in my family (and there are lots) had an assissted birth. Most of them were born at home.
