What is SPARK?
SPARK is a landmark national autism research study designed to speed up research and advance our understanding of autism to help improve lives. The University of Minnesota is one of 25 different clinical sites nationwide helping SPARK recruit 50,000 individuals with autism. Participants can include anyone diagnosed with autism, as well as their biological parents and siblings when possible. At this event, you can get your questions answered or just learn more about the study from SPARK staff. Staff will be on-site to assist with the enrollment process (registration and/or saliva collection). Expect registration and collection to take approximately one hour to complete from start to finish. Please bring everyone in the family who will be participating with you! Games and activities will be available for your children while you complete registration.
