TAP at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

TAP is a community-focused program of the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Illinois. Our mission is to support children 0-22 and their families, the professionals who serve them, and the greater community through trainings, group programs, and autism-specific resources. Our Resource Room is housed in the Family Resiliency Center and provides a place where families and professionals can find information, seek referrals, and order customized materials.
