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.

Holiday Potluck and Book Exchange

About: Tired of your Thanksgiving leftovers? Then plan on joining us for an evening filled with GFCFSF dishes and books. Yes we said books. We know Autism Parents love food as much as they love improving their loved ones health, social skills, relationships and more. That is why we will be pairing each participant with a book that will best help their child or loved one with Autism. So bring a dish to share and leave with a book to help you through your Autism journey. Please RSVP, it will help us set up appropriately. Thanks!

Hosted by Co-Coordinators Nancy Kirkman and Vanessa Surprise.
*We meet in the Lower Fireside Room, park in the lot close to the baseball fields on the corner of Pomerado Rd and Rancho Bernardo Rd.
*We will need to be out of the room by 9pm, please feel free to continue your conversations outside.
