 TACA is a wonderful organization and has many meetings throughout the US.

 If you are new to Autism or your child new to the diagnosis and you would like more answers a TACA group is the place to go. They have many seasoned parents that are willing to do everything they can to help you.

I love the resources that they have on the website, but they don't have any local chapters listed in my state. Grrrrr.

Absolutely no chapters in Texas! I would have figured Dallas or Houston at the very least (not that I live anywhere either of those cities).
