Talk About Curing Autism Launches Seven New Chapters
Date:2/26/2009

National organization expands reach to serve more families living with autism

COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is thrilled to announce the launch of seven new chapters, bringing the total of TACA chapters in the United States to 24.

The new TACA chapters are located in Birmingham, Alabama; Phoenix, Arizona; Bakersfield, California; Indianapolis, Indiana; Baltimore, Maryland; Las Vegas, Nevada and Tullahoma, Tennessee. Each chapter is chaired by local volunteers, who are also parents of children with autism. Chapters provide a range of services to support children with autism and their families including monthly educational meetings, parent mentors, an Autism Journey Guide for families who have just received their child's diagnosis and treatment scholarships. For families affected by autism in areas where a TACA chapter does not exist, the TACA website offers virtual chat with an experienced parent mentor.

Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder typically affecting one in every 150 children in the United States. Autism affects each individual differently and at different levels of severity. Some individuals with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live on their own. Others are less severe, can communicate and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own.

"Autism is a national emergency," said TACA executive director, Lisa Ackerman, "With one in every 150 children being diagnosed with autism, our community chapters are more important than ever. For decades autism has been viewed as a hopeless, untreatable disorder -- today we know that interventions can help people with autism at any age. It is our goal to help as many families as we can access the tools they need to help their children and we are able to do this through local chapters."
