Autism and assortative mating

Rod Liddle (yes, him again) has an interesting article here in this week's Spectator magazine, suggesting that the rise in autism cases may be due to an increase in assortative mating. He attributes the theory to Simon Baron-Cohen.

I think the idea is a very long shot, but worth mentioning.
