January 2021 - We are excited to announce TACT as an official member of ESCAN, the Easterseals Colorado Affiliate Network! Although we maintain our separate 501(c)(3) status, this affiliation will help us come together in a collaborative effort to better serve our community of people living with disabilities and their families. TACT is a Denver-based nonprofit organization that encourages and empowers individuals ages 5-30 living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through education and employment in the skilled trades industry.
We build, encourage, empower, educate + employ.
Founded in 2016, TACT serves individuals ages 5-30 living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through a variety of introductory workshops and career training in the skilled trades industry, one of the fastest growing and most difficult to fill professions in the country. TACT's enriching, innovative, hands-on educational programs are intended to help effectively prepare individuals living with ASD for employment and long-term self-sufficiency. With a focus on trade professions and technical skills, TACT offers the only program of its kind in the country.
