If my husband is suspected to be on the spectrum should are children be checked for it and if so how does one go about this?
Absolutely have your children evaluated. This disorder is highly heritable. It’s better to know early. There are many wonderful treatments for children that will help them. You can start with your school district since they will do an educational evaluation for free. If the children are preschoolers check with your local Intermediate Education District for screenings for young ones. To get a more thorough evaluation call a Child Guidance Clinic or your local University Psychology Clinic or Hospital.
