The Autism Society of East Tennessee received this information about a free genetics study happening in order to gain more information about autism.
You’ve been invited by Emory University/Emory Autism Center to refer someone to register or register with SPARK, a large, online research partnership that seeks to improve the lives of people with autism through research. You can register online here . Emory Autism Center is one of a network of clinical sites—autism centers and research institutions—that SPARK has partnered with across the country.
The goal of SPARK is to accelerate autism research in order to gain a better understanding of causes and treatments for autism. By building a community of tens of thousands of individuals with autism and their biological family members who provide behavioral and genetic data, SPARK will be the largest autism research study to date.
There is no cost to participate, and upon completion of the registration process, the individual with autism will receive a $50 gift card.
By joining SPARK, you will be making invaluable contributions to advancing the understanding of autism.

Registration takes about 20-30 minutes, and we’d love to have you onboard. As part of your participation in SPARK, we ask that you register and complete a few questionnaires online, and provide a saliva sample using a saliva collection kit that will be shipped directly to your home. Find out more about what’s involved on our SPARK FAQ page.
Together, we can improve lives by helping to accelerate research. SPARK sincerely appreciates your time, effort and participation in this landmark research initiative, and we look forward to learning more together!
