Abstract :

An assessment of autistic traits and atypical sensory reactivity (SR) by two separate scales in 12,419 Swedish twin pairs demonstrated an association with overlapping genetic influences. The association was evident at multiple levels of autistic trait severity, from milder autistic traits to a stricter screening diagnosis. SR can be considered as a core feature of autism-related genotypes.
