Errors occurred in the article by Daniels et al, titled “Parental psychiatric disorders associated with autism spectrum disorders in the offspring” published in the May 2008 issue of Pediatrics(doi:10.1542/peds.2007-2296). The authors' minor errors occurred in Table 1 on page e1359. These changes do not alter the main findings reported in the original manuscript. In column 1 under the heading, “age at delivery (years)” row 1 should begin with “≤25” and row 2 should begin with “26–30.” In column 7, the Autism OR* (95% CI) listed for Agriculture under fathers should be “1.0 (0.6, 1.7).” Lastly, in column 4, the Autism OR* (95% CI) listed for Other under mothers should be “0.7 (0.2, 2.9).”
