T.A.C.T. invites children
to move out of fear
and self-doubt into,
“I got this!”
At T.A.C.T., our services are unique and custom tailored. Our goal is to reach the entire community. Our mobile component sets up workshops and classes in coordination with local churches, schools, recreational centers, camps and parents. In addition, we host night and weekend classes throughout the month in our Denver RiNo facility. We teach a variety of trade skills specifically to individuals on the Autism Spectrum. The best part? The students get to keep what they make!
