The present article provides a brief cataloging of the rapidly emerging, clinically available biomarkers that the clinician can use to evaluate ASDs, and can potentially help normalize with targeted treatments. The use of biomarkers will assist the clinical geneticist in making a differential diagnosis, and determine potential etiological factors contributing to ASDs. Finally, it is clear that, as additional research is performed, the clinical geneticist will need to give careful attention to the task of incorporating new testing and treatment options for ASDs.
