The Virginia Autism Resource Center (VARC) is a statewide resource center dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with ASD and their families. Through integrative research, outreach and collaborative initiatives, VARC promotes and facilitates best practices. The mission of VARC is to collaborate with those who love and support a person on the spectrum to build knowledge and skills so those with ASD can live, learn and work in the natural community. VARC services fall into three general areas:

  • Information
  • Resources
  • Education and training
