Come to a TACA Event!

TACA Illinois holds Autism Learning Seminars, Coffee Talks and family events throughout the year. Our seminars feature educational speakers on important topics for ASD families. Our Coffee Talks and family events provide more settings where families can informally network, share resources and speak with seasoned parents.

Each TACA group maintains a resource library of the latest autism books and DVDs/CDs that can be checked out by members at no charge.
