The REACH Project is a new research study investigating the genetics of brain development in children and adolescents. This is a wonderful opportunity for your family to contribute to research that directly relates to your child's development.

We hope to learn more about how changes in genes influence the brain and in what ways these genetic variations may contribute to specific developmental conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to, ASD, ADHD, mental health conditions, developmental and speech delays, and genetic disorders.
