Every year Vermont Autism Task Force hosts the Autism Awareness Day in April. Come and meet with other people on the spectrum plus families, legislators and state officials.
Attend a legislative committee; listen to speakers share their experiences with autism; and meet Search and Rescue dogs and their handlers from an organization that has helped rescue individuals with autism who have wandered from safety. Late in the afternoon, join us at the State House Cafeteria for a meet and greet followed by a presentation.
We encourage visitors to the State House to contact their legislators to schedule a brief meeting during your visit. Legislators really appreciate hearing from their constituents and visitors can help educate legislators about issues that are important to people with autism and their families. Please be sure to invite your legislator to the Autism Awareness Day presentation at the cafeteria.
All Activities are free at the Vermont State House.
Come for a day of learning with workshops presented by Vermont Autism Task Force Members. This year’s topics include: Special Education, Mobile Technology, Legal Considerations for Adults with Disabilities, Safety & Independence, Transitioning into Adulthood, Disability Do’s & Don’ts.
