Coffee Talk - Ideas, Information and HOPE (what’s not to love?)

9:30 - 11:00 AM
Ebar at Nordstrom
1450 Ala Moana Blvd.
Honolulu, HI 96814

Better than the biggest Valentine, it’s a TACA table of ideas, info and hope! Join the moderated discussion of the issues that are most concerning to the people around the table. Everyone has a chance to be heard, but most importantly, helped on their search for answers for the people we care about. Whether you are new to the autism journey or have been on the journey for several years, there is a place for you at the TACA table. Look for the friendly faces wearing TACA shirts. Are you a first-time attendee? Look for the TACA shirts and introduce yourself. We look forward to meeting you and will have a Journey Guides available for you.
