TACA Mission

Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), founded in 2000, is a national non-profit organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. TACA aims to speed up the cycle from the suspicion of autism, to diagnosis, to effective treatments. TACA strengthens the autism community by connecting families with the professionals who can help them to improve the quality of life for people with autism.  

TACA provides education and support to families through a variety of programs, the majority of which are provided at no cost to families. TACA believes in early diagnosis, intensive therapies and medical intervention for children affected by autism. With early intervention, medical treatment unique to each person’s needs and necessary support services for families, many children can improve greatly and some can recover from their autistic symptoms.
