Your child may be referred to us if you or your doctor is concerned about his or her growth, development or health. Our role is to assess your child to determine if a genetic condition may be the underlying cause of these concerns.

Reasons that your child may be referred include if he or she:

  • has a history of a congenital anomaly (birth defect)
  • is experiencing developmental delay
  • has unexplained differences in growth
  • is noticed to have facial differences
  • is identified as a carrier of cystic fibrosis through the newborn screening test

We also provide children and their families with information, support and educational resources.
