Mission

The Neurogenetics special interest group (SIG) aims to increase the visibility and accessibility of genetic counselors who have both clinical and research expertise in neurogenetics. We propose to do this through educating the public and health care providers about our services and through active networking with peers. Genetic counselors who specialize in neurogenetics have developed skills specific to the management of and counseling for neurogenetic disorders. Such disorders may include the dementias, movement disorders, muscular dystrophies, hereditary neuropathies, hereditary basal ganglia disorders, mitochondrial disorders, epilepsy, stroke, migraine, multiple sclerosis, phakomatoses, and/or neural tube defects.
