Why Genetic Testing is Vital for Kids with Autism (feat. Lukas Lange of Probably Genetic) S3E9

In this week’s episode, I speak with Lukas Lange, the CEO and co-founder of Probably Genetic. Probably Genetic is working very hard to make genetic testing more accessible to families who need it. Families like mine. Lukas and I discuss what genetic testing is, the role genetics plays in our lives and why it’s so important to genetically test kids diagnosed with Autism. We also discuss the many hurdles to obtaining genetic testing in our current healthcare system, including cost and wait times, as well as why it’s a major problem for many families. Lukas also shares what Probably Genetic is doing to cut through all of this and make this invaluable testing accessible to families at a significantly reduced cost and in a fraction of the time. I’ve been consulting with Probably Genetic for over a year and helping them to better understand the unique needs of Autism families and how they can better meet those needs.
