I-Team logo

The Vermont I-Team was developed with a federal demonstration grant from 1974 to 1977 and has been partially funded by the State of Vermont since 1977. Since then, our project has continued to grow to further support students with special education needs, their families, and their IEP team.

The I-Team is also proud to be in collaboration with the Vermont Sensory Access Project.

I-Team services cover the five regions of Vermont, with a main office located at the University of Vermont's Center on Disability and Community Inclusion. Each region has its own Educational Consultant, who provides extensive skill and knowledge to IEP and school teams, and its own Family Resource Consultant, who provides support to families through first hand experience. Our Related Service Personnel consist of consultants, therapists, and specialists to assist families and students statewide.
