We are pleased to announce that the Center for Developmental Services has teamed up with MUSC in Charleston to host a Spark for Autism Study in Greenville, SC!

     “Spark for Autism at the Medical University of South Carolina is collecting saliva as a source of DNA from thousands of individuals with autism and their families as a part of the nation’s largest genetic autism study. The goal of this study is to transform our understanding of autism and help improve the lives of individuals affected by autism and their families. The Spark team will be traveling from Charleston to Greenville Saturday, June 29, 2019 to collect DNA samples from families interested in participating. Participation takes about 30 minutes per family and we ask for participation of both biological parents, as well as the individual with autism. Siblings are invited to participate as well. Additionally, families will receive a $50 Amazon e-card for their participation! We hope that you will consider signing up to participate!”
