The last few years has demonstrated continued rapid improvements in terms of the technology
enabling genetic testing, the number and types of genetic tests that are clinically and
commercially-available, and the knowledge base used to interpret test results. This section is a
summary update of what is relatively new in genetic testing that Dr. Boles believes may be of
help in children through young adults with neurodevelopmental (autism, ADHD, intellectual
disability, complex epilepsy), functional (cyclic vomiting, migraine, other chronic pain disorders,
dysautonomia, depression, anxiety), and mitochondrial disorders (all of the above, plus more).
For more details regarding what is genetic testing, what are the options and how to decide which
tests are appropriate test for each patient, see Genetic Testing FAQs.
