About Us


Mission Statement

The Vermont Autism Task Force strives to connect people with autism and their families to existing resources, while promoting best practices and increasing autism awareness across the state of Vermont.



We meet regularly from September to May and our year kicks off with the annual Retreat.  At this day long meeting, we plan our course of action for the year including areas of focus and formation of subcommittees as voted by the members. In addition to our subcommittee projects, we host a few special events during the year.  Each April we host an Autism Awareness Day event at the Vermont State House.

Meeting Information

The VATF year begins with a day-long annual retreat in early September, when plans of action are made for the coming year.  Subcommittees may be formed to address specific priorities.  Meetings are then held regularly through May, often in Burlington or central Vermont.

All VATF meetings are open to the public and potential members are invited to sit in on these proceedings.
