The Autism Place at Illinois State University was established in 2007 as part of the statewide network of support provided under The Autism Program of Illinois. The Autism Place (TAP) offers evidenced based therapies to address the needs of children diagnosed with autism. The services are provided by a treatment team comprised of Illinois State faculty, graduate student clinicians, and undergraduate students.
At the beginning of 2015, The Autism Program of Illinois service network consisted of 17 partners and 19 locations. Due to the budget uncertainty, several closed. Thanks to the generosity of ISU and the community The Autism Place at ISU was able to remain open.
While the grant support has been partially restored, FOTAP continues to be a significant financial contributor to TAP thanks to community members. To ensure continued state support, please contact your state representative and consider donating today.

ISU Student Involvement
Approximately, 30 undergraduates and 35 graduate students are involved in TAP every semester. For undergraduate students, they have the opportunity to take class credit to work at TAP, and for the graduate clinicians, both the first year and second year school psychology students are required to work at TAP as part of their pre-practicum and practicum coursework respectively.
