A diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder or developmental delay provides a general description for your child, but they don’t give underlying causes which are critical in determining the most safe and effective treatments.

Genetic testing can help:

Reduce medical risks (such as seizures)

Explain why your child has autism or delay

Personalize and guide better treatment for your child

Understand the level of support your child will need in the future

Inform other family members on family planning

Genetic testing from the comfort of your own home
