TAFI is an American tax-exempt, nonprofit charitable 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to science-based diagnoses and treatments of language problems in autism. Our key mission statement is:
TO BRING SCIENCE TO THE BEDSIDE
We continue to discover the nature of autism, using
- Advanced theoretical linguistics to understand a language system that does not always produce functional speech.
- Cutting - edge neuroimaging of the brain to reveal cerebral areas of the language system that underlie the problem.
- Advanced technology treatments, such as neuromodulation, to improve and often restore language function
- Guidance from parents who work together with us to offer their perspectives and new ideas.
