Description of Program Content:
Autism and intellectual disability (ID) are common, highly heritable neurodevelopmental disorders that frequently bring children to the attention of geneticists, neurologists, and other subspecialists . Autism and ID are characterized by extreme genetic heterogeneity and there is a growing variety of genetic testing options available to patients. After a brief review of these conditions, we will compare various testing options and discuss the implications of genetic testing for medical management.
Measurable Learning Objectives
At the end of this activity the participant will be able to:
• Discuss the current and future approaches to clinical genetic and genomic testing for children and families affected by autism and related disorders.
• To identify diagnostic utility and challenges related to clinical genetic and genomic testing for autism and related disorders
