Who can participate in SPARK?
SPARK is for all individuals living in the U.S. with a professional diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their family members. Through partnerships with clinical sites across the country, over 106,000 people with autism, 28,000 families, and 275,000 individuals have enrolled in SPARK. The size of the SPARK cohort will allow identification of almost all the genes that are responsible for autism. This will then kickstart progress in areas outside of genetics.
