Vermont Communication Task Force (VCTF)

The purpose of the VCTF is to improve supports for communication primarily for transition age students and adults with developmental disabilities so that they can communicate more effectively in order to participate more fully in community life, make decisions and better advocate for themselves. The Task Force provides information, education, training and resources to people with disabilities, family members, service providers and community members.
