About Us


The Virginia Autism Council is a group comprised of self-advocates, professionals and family members. This Council works to advance knowledge and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders by defining skill competencies needed to effectively support a person with ASD and to advance higher education, training and educational opportunities for personnel and caregivers who provide support.

The VAC website is Virginia’s clearinghouse on education and training opportunities taking place throughout the Commonwealth. Training promoted on this website is designed to advance knowledge and skills of professionals and family members regarding topics related to ASD.
