Welcome to the
Virginia Tech Autism Clinic & Center for Autism Research

where our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with autism and their families through intervention, education, and research directed towards effective treatments and supports.



Gifts of any size can have a profound impact on clients, their families and our next generation of Clinical Psychologists.

We're excited to share our recent story and short video from the VT News about our work on the Mobile Autism Clinic.

VTAC/CAR was thrilled to be one of four regional finalists for the Kellogg Foundation award this fall!!
More recently, we held Open Houses on the MAC and Steven White, VT Daily Doodler, sketched this great piece!
The VT Autism Clinic & Center for Autism Research is grounded in Virginia Tech's Principles of Community, "we reject all forms of prejudice and discrimination, including those based on age, color, disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, and veteran status. We take individual and collective responsibility for helping to eliminate bias and discrimination and for increasing our own understanding of these issues through education, training, and interaction with others.” VTAC/CAR publicly condemns systemic and institutional racism and the continued senseless acts of race-based violence.
