Reviews for Talk About Curing Autism

Rating: 5 stars  

I've had the privilege of serving on the TACA Board for more than 4 years now. After my son was diagnosed with Autism 11 years ago, TACA was the one place I could find straight forward information and resources. As a marketing executive, I've been involved with many different charities and TACA continues to amaze me on what they are able to do with limited resources. Given some additional support, this could be one of the most impactful non-profits of our times.

My first encounter with TACA was in 2006 at a TACA Medical Breakthroughs Conference for parents. I am an attorney and was a vendor at the conference. Parents at that conference asked questions directly to nationally recognized physicians specializing in the care of children with Autism. This direct access was almost unheard of in 2006. I watched amazed as all the speakers were surrounded by parents with questions as they tried to exit the conference. For many parents, for the first time, they were getting information about how to care for their child in real time from doctors and other professionals who had answers. As a result, TACA immediately impressed me as a non-profit that was different: TACA wasn't about feel-good walks or distributing pamphlets to raise community awareness: TACA provided then and continues to provide today REAL HELP NOW for families who have a child with Autism through one-on-one parent mentors, medical and legal conferences, resource guides and nine other critical programs. It was my pleasure in 2012 to be asked to join the TACA Board of Directors to help guide this outstanding and much-needed organization that continues to give real help to an ever-growing number of families who have a child with Autism.
