A mutation is
With 3 billion basepairs in the human genome, a change in a single nucleotide has no
effect.
Only a small fraction of human DNA, less than 2 percent of it, actually codes for proteins.
All children with familial childhood apraxia of speech have something wrong with one of two known causal genes, FOXP2 or BCL11A.
Finding causal genes for speech, language, and reading disorders has been difficult
because
Jamie, a boy with childhood apraxia of speech, has no biological relatives who also have or had speech difficulties. This proves that the cause is not genetic.
Sequential processing is impaired in many people with CAS. Which of the following
statements is true?
Which of the following is NOT among the possible early warning sign of childhood
apraxia of speech in an infant:
You just diagnosed a child with childhood apraxia of speech and you suspect a genetic cause because he has a brother who also has childhood apraxia of speech. Next, you are going to:
Which of the following is NOT within the professional scope of practice of a genetic
counselor:
