VTCAR is in its tenth year as a Center and we are excited about our spring biennial conference entitled Celebrating 10 Years of VTCAR: Access and Neurodiversity. This day-long event on Friday, April 21, 2023 at the Inn at Virginia Tech will be an opportunity to share in research and advocacy, and reconnect since our last in-person conference in 2019. We have our keynote and advocate speakers lined up and will also have several VT colleagues and graduate student alumni speak as well, highlighting the legacy of VTCAR and its founding members.
