TASP is a leading nonprofit committed to successfully supporting families when parents have learning difficulties.
Our Cause Defines Us
We know that lasting individual and social change come about when we work together to achieve a common goal. That’s why, supporting families when parents have intellectual disabilities is our cause. Every day we work side-by-side with researchers, practitioners, and self-advocates to assure that everyone, regardless of age, income, race, sexual orientation, background, or learning difficulties has a chance to parent.
A Chance to Parent
With a focus on research, education and service, TASP works to build the capacity of communities and families to support parents with learning difficulties.
We believe that the population of families in which one or more parents have an intellectual disability has not only been under-served, but discriminated against and repeatedly denied a chance to parent.
How We Do It
TASP brings together some of the most knowledgeable and committed professionals and self-advocates to help YOU make a difference. Our work is centered around education (through conferences, webinars, and direct training), advocacy at the local and national level, direct support for parents and professionals, and resource sharing.
