Pediatric and Adult Support

Many childhood and adult diseases and disorders have genetic causes. You may consider testing if you're concerned because your child isn’t meeting developmental milestones, was born with a birth defect, is growing poorly or has other symptoms often associated with genetic conditions.

This may be distressing and overwhelming, but we’re here to offer support and guidance to help your family find meaningful answers. 

 

 

Diagnosis and Testing

Our services for children and adults include:

  • Diagnosing genetic disorders
  • Treating genetic conditions
  • Testing for potential genetic causes of birth defects, developmental problems or chronic diseases
  • Testing to evaluate the chances of passing down a genetic disorder to future children
  • Providing counseling and education about the specific condition in the family
  • Offering resources and support group information about genetic disorders
