Common and Rare Genetic Variants In the Etiology of Asd; Where Is the Field Heading?

This presentation will summarize our current understanding of the genetic architecture of ASD focusing on recent studies from the Simons Simplex Collection and the Autism Genome Project highlighting the role of common and rare genetic variants. Important evidence gaps will be identified and exciting new approaches outlined that might address those gaps. The potential for translation of these findings into changes in clinical practice will also be described.
