Who We Are

The Autism Program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Our friends just call us TAP.

We are part of a state-wide network of resources for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in the state of Illinois and are one of their five Regional Training Centers.  We are a joint program of the Department of Human and Community Development and the Department of Special Education.  Our Resource Room is housed in the Family Resiliency Center and provides a place where families and professionals can find information or preview materials that might be helpful to them.

We focus on:

  1. Providing a resource and referral center for parents and professionals.
  2. Developing and evaluating model programs in training, treatment, and family support.
  3. Facilitating collaborations between agencies, schools, and individuals that enhance the community’s capacity and quality of services for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families.

Many different types of materials are available in the TAP Resource Room.  All of our materials are free, and can be customized to meet individualized needs. TAP staff and student interns are available to meet in person or via phone/email to collectively brainstorm creative problem-solving solutions. Many of our materials can also be translated to Spanish. These materials include:

  • Books and DVD’s for checkout
  • Teaching kits containing structured teaching activities for checkout
  • Learning aids
  • Flyers, articles, brochures, and booklets from local, state, and national organizations which are free to the public

Come visit us or check out our online resource room!
