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.

Join the conversation and meet other parents and caregivers to share information, get fresh ideas, support and resources. No autism topic is off limits and discussion is encouraged. Come with your questions and concerns but more importantly, bring your experiences. Sharing your experiences with other families on the autism journey will have us all leaving with a lot of hope. We each can’t know everything, but when we come together great things happen! Journey Guides will be available to new families. Look for the TACA Table.

TACA is sharing ideas to help your family this holiday season. Ideas including special food, family gatherings, gift ideas for your sensory seeker (or avoider!) and lots more will be shared and discussed. You don’t have to come up with every great idea yourself! Every attendee will receive a ‘Holiday Letter’ to give to family and friends who might appreciate a little extra detail about how to help your child make the most of this holiday season. Caregivers new to TACA will receive the Autism Journey Guide as a take-home resource.
