San Joaquin Valley – Visalia & Fresno

Come to a TACA Meeting!

TACA holds monthly meetings in many locations throughout the United States that feature educational speakers on important topics and allow family members to connect with one another and stay on top of the latest information in the autism world.

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.

Are you wondering what happens at a TACA meeting? Watch our video.

Parents from throughout the San Joaquin Valley are encouraged to join us in Visalia (Tulare County) & Fresno. Families come from a 100-mile radius to hear our speakers and convene with other parents and grandparents. Whether you live in a mountain community in the Sierra Nevada, down to Bakersfield to the south, up to Merced in the north, or out in Coalinga and Lemoore in the west, we would love to meet you.
