Virginia Chapter

TACA Virginia holds Meetings and Coffee Talks throughout the year. Our meetings feature educational speakers on important topics for ASD families. Our Coffee Talks provide more settings where families can informally network, share resources and speak with seasoned parents.

We need your help. Please make a donation to the TACA Virginia Family & Friends page and help make positive change for families living with autism. You can also set up your own page to help raise funds for TACA! Click here for more info.
