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 treatment and prevention.

Professor of Psychology and Director of VTAC & CAR Angela Scarpa shares a moment with her son, who was diagnosed with autism just before his second birthday.

History with a heart.

Responding to the direct needs of our communities.

Together we can continue to merge science with service.

Your financial support is critical to the success of the VT Autism Clinic, including our mobile
services. Contributions from our alumni, families, and friends help rural communities
access critical, affordable services.
