Disorder Fact Sheets
The following disorder fact sheets are designed to provide additional disorder-specific information to both families and providers following an abnormal newborn screening result. It is important for parents or guardians to know that an abnormal result does not always mean that your baby has one of the conditions on the newborn screen list.
Family fact sheets offer families more specific information about the disorder.
Provider fact sheets offer health care providers recommended short-term actions following an abnormal result that is received from the NBS lab, as well as basic information about the disorder.
Mobile App now available! The ACMG ACT Sheets and algorithms are available at your fingertips on your smartphone or tablet on the ACT Sheet Mobile App.
IBDPR Fact Sheets offer health care providers and families information about each condition that is reportable to the Indiana Birth Defects and Problems Registry.
