"Many of these gene variants may serve as valuable predictive markers. If so, they may become part of a clinical test that will help evaluate whether a child has an autism spectrum disorder."
"These high-impact variants could be most useful in advising parents who already have one child with an ASD. If a second child has delays in reaching developmental milestones, testing for these CNVs could help predict whether that child is also likely to develop an ASD."
"Taken together, these data provide strong support for the existence and application of high-impact CNVs in the clinical genetic evaluation of children with ASD."
