Your Participation Helps Our Community
Right now the biggest obstacle for TAC is that we are not a 501c3 non-profit. The funds from this campaign will go straight to the filing fees for both incorporating TAC and the 501c3 status. Thank you for your support!
Follow TAC All Year Long!
Follow the TAC Facebook page to ensure you are up-to-date with all their yearly activities and information for families. Contact TAC to learn about resources and services which might benefit your family.
Children’s Communication Center & TAC
Our Center is proud to support the 1st All About Autism Resource Fair and include the Tallahassee Autism Community in our Philanthropy Share campaign!
A special 2018 contribution from Children’s Communication Center will be our #LittleOnesRock #BeRocks filled with words of inspiration, positive thinking, encouragement, and imagination.
When you find a Little One Rock at the event, please use the hashtags on the back of your rock to share on our Facebook and Instagram, as well as the TAC, and TLH Rocks social media. You can then re-hide it for others to find, keep it for a bit and hide later, or keep it as a memento.
What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
ASD is a neurodevelopmental disorder defined by persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction, accompanied by restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. The prevalence rates have been rising steadily since the 1960s.
Speech-Language Pathology & ASD
As a Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) private practice, Children’s Communication Center, is committed to providing high quality, well-managed & professional SLP services to young children through adults with ASD and their families.
We work in collaboration with other medical and educational professionals and local and state programs to ensure the most appropriate services for each child and family.
Children’s Communication Center & ASD
Our Director & Founder, Lori Savage Grayson, believes that the success of ‘our children’ is only possible because of the trust, respect and cooperation that we all share.
SLPs are integral professionals in the lives of families living with ASD. In a recent blog post, Lori Savage Grayson discusses the benefits of SLP services.
