TASB volunteers are very excited to create our first TASB Autism+ Expo. Many families are lost and advocating for their loved ones on the autism spectrum. The Association of stylists & barbers (TASB) is interested in bringing guidance, therapy, knowledge and products for parents who have children/students on the autism spectrum. TASB invites you to share your questions, comments & concerns! From how a child is diagnosed, to how autism can affect the family dynamic. Lunch and learn with other autism parents, you’re not alone! Speakers will motivate you as well as our professionals can shape your brows with perfection or enjoy a relaxing hand massage! (complimentary). Raffles, gifts and a new friend awaits you at our event. TASB has a mission, to help you “Cut Out” the stress and find your answers!

A great way to show off your resources. For a  minimum donation of $20 venders can reserve space and receive a 2 minute spotlight for your knowledge/facility/product, (contact us to register). We will continue to update you as our program unfolds so please come back!
