A Message from the Sponsors

This workshop is for anyone who works with children in the special education system, not just autism!

Our Board of Directors and Advisory Council include representatives of state agencies, school professionals, medical professionals, parents of children with autism, persons with autism, attorneys, and other relevant stakeholders.

The Arc of Virginia advocates for individuals with mental retardation and developmental disabilities and their families, so they may all lead productive and fulfilling lives.

With 1 in 10 families impacted by mental retardation, this issue is relevant in every community. In response, The Arc of Virginia works for the creation of individualized and self-determined community-based supports through leadership, advocacy, and education.To learn more about the ARC of VA please visit them at: www.arcofva.org

Autism Society of America chapters are operated by parents or professionals who volunteer to share their knowledge of local school systems, doctors, and other services. Many chapters offer informative newsletters and host regular support group meetings.

The mission of the Autism Society of America is to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals within the autism spectrum, and their families, to be fully participating, included members of their community. Education, advocacy at state and federal levels, active public awareness and the promotion of research form the cornerstones of ASA's efforts to carry forth its mission.

A Message from Wrightslaw

We designed the Virginia Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people who love and work with our children can get reliable information, support -- and connect with one another.

You will find different kinds of resources on this page - government programs, grassroots organizations, and support groups. To make it easy for you to find the information you need, we organized these groups alphabetically.
