Our Mission

Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) provides information, resources, and support to families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments. TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, allowing them to share stories and information to help people with autism be the best they can be.

Through our national partners and newly added National Initiative we now have friends across the U.S. to help. TACA will be expanding resources, meetings and other pertinent information soon. Please contact us on how you can help or be involved.

Many of the resources listed are for California – however – much of the information is helpful for any family affected by autism – ANYWHERE.
