What is SPARK?
SPARK is a nationwide study committed to transforming our understanding of autism and helping to improve the lives of individuals affected by autism through research. MUSC is among 31 research sites across the country helping to enroll individuals with autism and their parents. Over 27,000 families nationwide are already participating in SPARK!
Who can join?
with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), PDD-NOS, Asperger's Disorder, or Autism, and their families, are welcome to join.
Only biological family members will be asked to provide saliva samples.
Individuals must live in the United States and be able to complete consent forms in English.
Participation involves a 30 minute appointment, which includes registration and saliva collection. We ask that both biological parents, as well as the individual with autism, be present at the appointment. Siblings are invited to participate as well. In most cases, one sibling can be registered per sibling with ASD. There is no cost to join and families will receive a $50 Amazon e-card and a SPARK "trick-or-treat" gift bag for their participation.
***RSVP is required! Sign-up for your appointment time below***
If you have already registered and need help completing your family's enrollment or with saliva collection, we invite you to attend as well!
