In 2012, the TACAnowblog has reached almost 130,000 readers. The content appears to be relevant for a community blog.

The archives of articles are pretty amazing and always available for your review. We appreciate the guest blogs from Drs. Bob Sears, Dan Rossignol, Elizabeth Mumper, some great TACA parents, individuals diagnosed with autism, their siblings, and  TACA staffers Holly Bortfeld and Summer Stech.

Our most popular 2012 blog posts include:

On my phone is where I keep a list a potential blog titles that need to be written. The list stands at 30 ideas. Every day there seems to be a new inspiration.  Also on my phone are four blogs in progress that need to be finished up. (And yes most of time, I type these posts on my phone. I love my iPhone.)

As we kick off 2013, we would like to know what you want to read about next. Please share your ideas and this wonderful team will address these topics one by one.

Our goal on this blog is to educate, empower and inspire families living with autism.  Please help us prioritize those next steps so we can better serve our TACA friends.  Thanks for sharing your ideas!
