Northern New England SPARK Study
Maine Behavioral Healthcare was recently chosen as the Northern New England clinical site for the largest autism study ever undertaken in the United States. Known at the SPARK study, the goal is to enroll 50,000 people in three years to collect information and DNA for genetic analyses to further explain the causes of autism. The Developmental Disorders program at Maine Behavioral Healthcare has been chosen as the Northern New England study site responsible for recruiting any person with autism, along with their family members, in Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont.
Participants can learn more and register for the study at: www.sparkforautism.org/mainemedicalcenter
The study coordinator, Laurie Raymond, is happy to talk with individuals, parents and providers about the study and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-661-7620.
