  • Over the past decade, the reported incidence of autism spectrum disorders has continued to increase. Coincident with this, the number of referrals to clinical geneticists to identify the etiology has also dramatically increased. The reported diagnostic yield for autism spectrum disorders is commonly reported in the range of 6–15%. However, continued advances in genetic technology expand the diagnostic options available for these evaluations and presumably increase the diagnostic yield. The list… CONTINUE READING
