Genetic Connections
Workshop for Early Intervention Professionals

The MSRGN Genetic Connections Workshop for Early Intervention Professionals was created in response to the professional outreach that our Genetic Navigators were doing in their states. This outreach led to discovering a desire, need and request from early intervention providers in the Mountain States Region for more information and resources about genetics that they could share with the families they served. Launched in the fall of 2022, this workshop has had over 750 participants recieve the four module, 2 hour training sessions covering 1) The Who and What of Genetics 2) Genetic Vocabulary 3) Four Family Case Studies 4) Red Flags and Next Steps.
