TABLE 2

Categories of Genomic Sequencing Results That May Be Disclosed at the Discretion of Parents and Mature Adolescents

• Risk assessment for future health: later-onset conditions, diseases, or disabilities the risk of which is modifiable only during adulthood. The child’s long-term health interests as an adult can be protected and promoted by efforts to prevent adult-onset conditions, diseases, or disabilities for which effective prevention can begin during adulthood. Alternately, parents and mature adolescents may elect to receive these results at the time of sequencing.
• Incidental or secondary findings of non–life-threatening conditions.
