VCU-ACE is involved in a variety of initiatives designed to enhance the quality of life for individuals with ASD from birth through adulthood. Each project is aimed at promoting and facilitating best practices and building the knowledge and skills of families, service providers, physicians and the general public.

The scope and nature of the projects varies tremendously; however, each targets an area that will help those with autism spectrum disorders to be empowered and to live successfully in the natural community.
