Hope through action starts here
It’s a marathon, not a sprint; so, take it one day at a time. Making big changes will be difficult but they will change your life, your family’s life, and most importantly, your child’s life for the better.
virtual support & education events
TACA offers monthly virtual parent support and family panel meetings where parents can connect with other autism parents from their home computer or mobile phone.
For more individualized support, parents can be matched with an experienced and supported TACA Parent Mentor to help guide them on the autism journey. TACA Parent Mentors are seasoned autism parents who offer one-on-one support and information about autism-related topics, including; biomedical treatments, dietary intervention, insurance, IEP, therapies, and more.
hope & help for autism private group
TACA’s private Facebook Group (TACA – Help and Hope for Autism) is a well-moderated group for parents/caregivers of an individual with autism. This large national group allows parents to ask questions anytime. We share resources across the spectrum of ability and age to support a community as we move through the autism journey. It’s a great place to find resources, support, help, and hope.
TACA provides in-depth, comprehensive information and resources to help parents navigate all aspects of the autism journey, including obtaining a diagnosis, developing skills, medical issues, special education/IEPs, diet, preparing for adulthood, and more.
TACA chapters across the US hold meetings, autism learning seminars, coffee talks, and family events throughout the year. Comprised of TACA Parent Volunteers across the country, our coffee talks and family events provide settings where families can informally network, share resources and speak with seasoned parents.

Each week, TACA Mentors will help families create a plan to connect with resources and TACA programs to create better outcomes in their autism journey.
