Geisinger’s ADMI is one of over 20 autism centers and research institutions that SPARK has partnered with across the country. By joining SPARK, you will be making invaluable contributions to advancing the understanding of autism.

Joining SPARK is simple – register online and provide a saliva sample via a saliva collection kit that can be sent directly to your home. There is no cost to join SPARK, and families can earn a $50 gift card for participating! Any individual with autism (and their parents, if appropriate) are invited to register for SPARK.
