VAC is proud to offer six unique programs for adults of any age affected by autism or other developmental disabilities. Our offerings focus on improving living skills for both supported and independent living situations; and programs to develop self-advocacy, as well as functional, social, and daily living skills. Four of our programs focus on developing skills related to vocational training and enhancing the adult’s employability. All VAC adult day programs utilize Applied Behavior Analysis techniques to create Individualized Program Plans with goals and objectives specific to each student.
