The Center’s newest outreach initiative is housed in a 29-foot RV that will expand more ASD services into several counties within Central Appalachia.  The MAC will be equipped with computers, internet access, and video recording equipment, and will offer space to conduct parent/family mediated interventions for ASD.  Regular visits to these communities by Center faculty and staff in the MAC will provide parents and caregivers with trainings on evidence-based treatment, with the goal being to empower families with additional skills on how to better support their children with Autism. For more information on providing mobile autism services in your community, contact Jen Scott, the MAC Rural Outreach Coordinator at jenp@vt.edu
