Personal note from – We encourage all families to register with Simons VIP Connect. All you will be asked to do is complete some phone interviews and online surveys.  You will not be asked to do anything in person. Simon’s VIP is sharing all information with any medical professionals interested in studying the GRIN2B gene. The more of us that are registered with Simon’s VIP, the better it will be in the long run for our families when it comes to understanding how GRIN2B affects our children. And, as an added benefit, you will receive Amazon gift cards for each survey and phone call you complete.

Though Simon’s VIP is interested in studying our children and how their GRIN2B change relates to Autism, please note that not all children with GRIN2B changes will be diagnosed with Autism.  Your child can participate in this study regardless of whether or not they have an Autism diagnosis.

Dr. Wendy Chung at Simon’s VIP Connect
Can be reached by emailing
You can direct specific questions about your child’s variant/symptoms to Dr. Chung at Simon’s VIP and, if local to New York, you may be able to make an appointment to see her. However, she has stated that her answers will only be as good as the data that is published, of which there is very little. Do not be surprised if there are many answers of “I don’t know.”
