What is SPARK?

We are a growing community of individuals, families, and researchers on a mission to speed up the understanding of autism. Our aims are to:

  • Collect DNA and information through surveys from 50,000 people with autism and both of their parents.
  • Share that data with qualified researchers.
  • Make breakthroughs that were never before possible.
  • Return our findings to you.

WHY JOIN?

Your DNA could hold the answer that sparks the next genetic discovery for autism.
The more families who join, the more that can be discovered. You will be able to:

  • Find possible genetic causes of autism in your own family.
  • Power future autism research for years to come.
  • Join other autism research studies.
  • Get updates on the latest autism research.
