VOR Supports the Coalition for the Preservation of 14(c)

VOR has recently joined forces with the Coalition to Protect 14c, a group of advocates dedicated to preserving employment opportunities for people with I/DD for whom competitive integrated employment may not be an option.
The Coalition has recently released a white paper outlining their position, and VOR members have been actively engaged in meeting with congressional staffers in support of the preservation of these employment opportunities for people with I/DD and Autism.

Severe Autism - Video and Panel Discussion

We are proud to feature a video on Severe Autism, created by Dr. Gloria Satriale, Executive Director of Preparing Adolescents and Adults for Life, Secretary of the National Council on Severe Autism, and a member of VOR. Following the premiers of the video, there was a panel discussion featuring advocates from the National Council on Severe Autism, VOR, and Together for Choice.
