The Investigation of Genetic Exome Research (TIGER) Study
In the TIGER Study we conduct a comprehensive assessment of individuals with genetic events associated with ASD, ID, and/or DD in order to better describe how different genetic events impact behavior in children and adults.
Participation includes a visit to the University of Washington in Seattle during which we will conduct a clinical assessment, neurocognitive assessment, EEG, 2 dimension and 3 dimension photos, language testing, medical examination, a blood draw, an optional skin biopsy, and collect a detailed developmental history. Expenses related to the study visit (such as airfare and lodging) will be covered by the study and subjects will be reimbursed $100 for their participation.
Please see below for a list of genes that we are currently studying in the TIGER study. This list is not comprehensive. The field of genetics is always advancing and additional genes might be added to the list in the future. If you’re interested in participating and your child has a gene event not on this list, please feel free to contact us to check!
