If all 4 of my first male cousins are autistic, and so is my boyfriend, will my baby be autistic as well? What are the chances?

    It is a possibility but there are also autistic children with parents who don't have Autism. 

    The cause of Autism is still unknown but there are many factors.

    Yes, Autism is genetic. So that means if whoever has it in your family, he or she will inherit traits of Autism.
