TAP maintains a large collection of resources to provide information about autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as well as tips and tools for use by those who care for and work with individuals with ASD.  A number of these resources are available on our website for you to download and use immediately, most in English and Spanish.  Many more are available in the Family and Community Resource Rooms maintained by the TAP Service Network Partners.  To find the location nearest you, click here.
