Utility of Genomic Sequencing in Community Care Contexts

FOA Number: PAR-20-254

Abstract

PROJECT NARRATIVE Families with children who have identified deficits in speech and/or sensory or musculoskeletal impairments without a known cause may be referred for genetic testing to find out whether there is a genetic cause. However, there is little research into how parents and caregivers use this diagnosis to inform decisions about therapeutic services, access to school services, or how a genomic diagnosis informs the practice of the community professionals who provide these services. This project will examine how a genomic diagnosis shapes the care that children receive from community professionals, including physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, special education teachers, behavior analysts, and mental health providers.
