SPARK for Autism

As part of Hypothesis Haven Science Club's mission to teach children how doctors and scientists discover, treat and prevent illnesses, we are excited to share opportunities for children to take part in clinical research.
The SPARK for Autism study aims to be the largest ever online research study, collecting information and DNA from 50,000 families, to help answer questions about autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
