Thank you for your interest in our live research event for the SPARK for Autism research study! By participating in SPARK, you will help power important research to better understand causes and treatments for autism. We are partnering with the Houston Museum of Natural Science during their Sensory Friendly Day to help families with enrollment and data collection.
What is SPARK for Autism?
SPARK, a large, online research partnership at Texas Children's Hospital, seeks to improve the lives of people with autism through research. Participation involves completing an online registration (20-30 minutes) and providing a saliva sample. Individuals with autism as well as their biological family members are all invited to join SPARK. Families will receive up to $50 in gift cards (one gift card per family).
