Welcome to all our Canadian Tacpackers and a special welcome to those who have been on the  CBE Staff Association Virtual Convention 2022

Tacpac draws together touch and music to create a structured half hour of sensory communication between two people. Tacpac creates sensory alignment and helps people of any age who have sensory impairment, developmental delay, complex learning difficulties, tactile defensiveness, and limited or pre-verbal levels of communication.
