Tallahassee Autism Support Coalition (T*A*S*C*)

T*A*S*C* is a small, but reasonably active community-based, all-volunteer organization in the Big Bend region of Florida.

The Tallahassee Aspergers Adult Peer Support Group is intended to work as a safe, “aspie friendly” environment for participants to develop social skills, acquire new knowledges and gain perspective on life on the autism spectrum in the world.

This group is for those from the North Florida and Southeastern Georgia areas, including Tallahassee, Thomasville, Bainbridge and surrounding counties or to anyone who is moving to those areas who is a higher-functioning adult with an autism spectrum disorder, such as Aspergers.

T*A*S*C* provides information, referral and other support as possible for higher-functioning adults with autism spectrum disorders, their family members and friends. Currently, T*A*S*C* runs two programs.

  • The Gathering is a mainly social club and only indirectly a social skills practice venue. The purpose is to provide a safe, aspie friendly environment for members to experience social contact and have some fun around shared interests and new interests. It meets weekly, Saturdays from about 1:00pm to around 2:00pm in the coffee shop of the Borders Books on Apalachee Parkway in Tallahassee, Florida.
  • The Tallahassee Aspergers Adult Peer Support Group is intended to be involved in peer-led, participant-directed more-or-less formal support group work for more higher-functioning adults with the autism spectrum disorders (such as Aspergers). It will meet at least monthly, from between around 7:30/8:00pm until 9:00pm in the Education Building of the First Presbyterian Church, 110 North Adams Street in downtown Tallahassee, Florida.
