Our History

tasc history

Since 1987, The Adult Skills Center (TASC) has provided services to nearly 2500 individuals with developmental disabilities ranging from intellectual disabilities to autism, cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Since that time, TASC has grown significantly, developing several different programs each focusing on what TASC has identified as the unique needs of the men and women we serve. “I began TASC 30 years ago so that TASC participants and their families would play an important role in the direction of the services and support they receive. It has always been important to me that everyone associated with TASC, including participants, their families and staff feel every day that they are a part of the TASC family.” – Ken Lane
