UCLA SPARK for Autism is coming to your community!

December 13, 2018

UCLA is one of 23 clinical sites partnered with the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) to bring you SPARK. 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. UCLA is also one of 4 clinical sites working on an additional project to reduce disparities and increase representation amongst underrepresented communities in the SPARK research study.
