Some questions, some answers

Here are our most frequently asked questions

What programs do you offer?

Career Track: Ages 14-30. We offer semester-length classes with a focus on job preparation, job development, and job placement in the trades. Options include: Auto, Carpentry, Computer Science, Electrical, Technology (STEM), and Welding.

Workshops:  Ages 5-30. We provide workshop courses in a variety of formats. Typically, these programs take place during weekends, after school or school breaks. These classes focus on introductions to the trades and exploration. Through these workshops, students will practice their functioning skills, socialization, frustration tolerance and fine and gross motor skills.

Job Coaching: Ages 16+. We offer on-the-job training in various areas of job development, preparation, placement, and maintenance. Typically this is a 90 day program, however every student has unique needs requiring unique timeframe standards.

Do you serve the whole spectrum of students?

Yes! We also complete safety assessments to determine eligibility.

How are TACT’s services funded?

TACT is a Colorado Program Approved Service Agency (PASA) & partners with Colorado Community Centered Boards to serve participants on the Supported Living Services (SLS) & Comprehensive Services (DD) Waivers.

We partner with Colorado's Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) to fund a variety of youth & adult programming including job exploration, supported employment & more.

TACT accepts private pay and will work with families who do not qualify for state or federal funding.

Why the Trades?

We empower our clients to leverage their unique visual and perception skills in innovative ways. Our programs not only focus on developing marketable skills for sustainable careers in a growing industry but also foster growth in fine and gross motor skills, executive functioning, problem-solving, and socialization—without contrived scenarios common in other industries serving our clientele.

Our age-appropriate trades programs address a critical gap in the sector, offering tailored support for young adults with ASD. As the baby boomer generation exits the trades, there's a pressing need for skilled workers. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the essential role of trade workers, often overlooked but vital in maintaining our everyday infrastructure.
