Today Matt and I finally completed our packets to help with autism research!!
I saw information about the Spark autism research on Facebook and clicked through for more information. I read what this program is trying to accomplish through looking at things like location, age at conception . . As participants fill out a list of questions Spark is able to create a map of what similarities/differences participants have. Then we spit in a tube and our DNA is used for further mapping.
This explains what we received from Spark.
A basic list of what we need to do.
Once all is finished we simply mail it back and our info is added to their research. The more families that participate the more accurate the results will be. Contact Spark for Autism to add your valuable data to make their research more complete!!
