TACA was there to offer hope and I so appreciate that the website has so much information for easy access but the real lifeline is being able to have a mentor who has been through this all already and being able to be with other parents wanting to have action and steps to take to help their child to be the best that they can be.

Thank you, TACA, and I can't tell you how many people I have helped by sending them the link to your diet page.

I have been a volunteer with TACA for over 10 years and am so impressed at the level of help they offer to families and at how well everything is organized. I get to show up and know what I am doing and where I am supposed to be. The support both in front and behind the scenes is phenomenal.

Thank you TACA for being Real Help Now for so many.

I don't have a child with autism, but I know many who do- I have been to many TACA events and know about the services they provide, and the true care they have for families affected by autism. A great resource for anyone who wants to know more about autism which is becoming all-too-common!

TACA representatives always take the time to answer the questions of struggling parents. This year I attended my first TACA GA conference. I brought home so much helpful information and new ideas to implement for my 25 year old son with autism.

TACA is the perfect example of how every nonprofit should operate. 95% of monies go directly into programs and support that help families dealing with autism. I used to give to Autism Speaks but stopped when I learned how much money is wasted on administrative expenses and sickened to learn how little Autism Speaks actually uses their funds to help those living with autism today.
If you want to make a difference, this is the nonprofit for you. These dedicated individuals (mostly volunteer) are changing lives.
