Saint Paul's Autism

Research & Training Academy Inc.


SPARTA is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization which aims to conduct research and provide empirically supported treatments in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) to children with severe Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in the school and at home with their parents and family members.


Autism prevalence is an issue that requires further awareness, study, and support worldwide. It is believed to be growing in rural areas and smaller cities at an alarming rate. Dr. Lafasakis and other dedicated researchers have been studying autism for years, and believe SPARTA’s initiative can help children with severe autism in America and in Greece where we currently operate.

We have helped over 250 families find support and helped their children find activities and programs that help them grow. This is all thanks to the support we have received from corporate and individual donors. We could not do this without you!​

Your donation to SPARTA can help us raise awareness and provide essential support to people affected by Autism in America and in rural areas of Crete, Greece.

Through your commitment and generosity, we will be able to have an enormous and positive impact on many families and children.
