Simons Foundation Powering Autism Research for Knowledge

Research Study

The mission of SPARK — an online research partnership involving 50,000 individuals with autism and their families — is simple. We want to speed up research and advance understanding of autism.

Help us spark better futures for all individuals and families affected by autism.
