Join SPARK: Igniting Autism Research, Improving Lives
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until June 15, 2020
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.
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.
Joining is Simple.
Individuals with a professional diagnosis of autism and their families are welcome.
