It is widely accepted that Asperger's is hereditary

Asperger's is considered hereditary because parents that are on the Autism spectrum have a higher chance to have a child with Asperger's or another form of Autism. Those parents without it, may still have a child that is on the spectrum, but it's a much lower chance.
