Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in the country with more than 300 children diagnosed every day. That’s one child every 4.5 minutes – one family every 4.5 minutes – whose lives will be forever changed. While there is no medical detection or known cure for autism, many children show significant improvement with early diagnosis and use of effective interventions.
Although autism costs the nation over $238 billion dollars a year, funding for treatments, interventions, and family support is minimal. Private not-for-profit organizations provide most of the funding for these greatly needed treatments, interventions, and family support. In our community, the Indiana Chapter of The Autism Community in Action (TACA) is dedicated to helping individuals and families with autism with those needs.
Today, TACA is asking you to support their missions by taking part in our sixth annual An Evening for Autism on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at 502 East in Carmel from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. Our goals are great – but our community’s needs are greater. With this year’s larger, beautiful venue, we hope to reach 300 supporters attending the event and to raise $75,000.
The Autism Community in Action (TACA) Indiana is an organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting 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 improve the quality of life for people with autism.
