Children with autism spectrum disorders often require additional supports to reach their maximum educational potential. Navigating the educational system can be overwhelming and confusing. This month, TACA explores federal law including Individual Education Plans (IEPs), advocating for your child, and alternatives to traditional public education.

The Autism Community in Action (TACA) provides general information regarding medical research, treatment options, therapies and nutrition to the autism community. The information comes from a variety of sources and is not independently verified by TACA. Nothing presented in print or at meetings should be construed as medical or legal advice. Always consult your child's doctor regarding his or her individual needs.
