You hold the power to shape the future of autism research.

Help us spark better futures for all
individuals and families affected by autism.


One out of every 68 children in the United States is affected by the challenges surrounding autism spectrum disorders.

The mission of SPARK is simple. We want to speed up research and advance understanding of autism.

We are currently recruiting participants for this groundbreaking initiative, which combines a web-based registry with DNA analysis to accelerate autism research and speed discovery of treatment and supports.

 By joining SPARK, you will help individuals and families like you who are affected by autism.

"If we can make anybody's life better, it's well worth participating"
