SPARK for Autism Research Study

Boston Children’s Hospital would like to invite individuals of all ages diagnosed with autism as well as their family members to join SPARK!  SPARK, sponsored by the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative, has the mission of speeding up research and advancing understanding of autism by building the nation’s largest autism study!    Registration and information can be found online at www.SPARKforAUTISM.org/BCH.   Individuals with autism will receive gift cards valued at up to a total of $50 for participation. By dramatically increasing the number of research participants, SPARK aims to help facilitate research that has not yet been possible.
