Brief Answer:
Your son needs a clinical geneticist opinion

Detailed Answer:
Hi... I understand your concern. Your son requires a clinical geneticist opinion, rather than a the genetic testing like this in a laboratory.

The Other clinical points which need to be ascertained by a clinical geneticist will be -

1. Dysmorphic facies - as in the report they had mentioned about hypertelorism, which means his eyes are widely spaced.

2. Any discrepancy in the hands and feet including finger spacing and the creases on his palms and soles.

3. Psychological assessment by certain clinically approved psychological tests by a trained paediatric clinical psychologist.

4. Lack of concentration does not represent only autism. it might be an attention deficit hyperactivity also. Please do not think that I am scaring you are confusing you more.

If I was your pediatrician I would have first got a paediatric clinical psychological assessment of your kid by approved tests which they use.

Based on the assessment result I would have further suggested any further genetic testing, if required.

Apart from that I would also have taken opinion from a clinical geneticist.

These two are the things which I suggest for your son XXXXXXX right now.

Regards - Dr. Sumanth
