CDCI CARES increases school teams’ capacity to identify and meet the unique access needs of students who are DHHDB. 

Grant funding from the AOE makes it possible for Consultation and TA to be provided at no charge to all public schools in Vermont. Assessments, evaluations and counseling are provided for a fee of $140/hr. The CDCI CARES Team serves the entire state of Vermont, with our main office located at the University of Vermont's Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI).

"The team has been part of my child's life for years, and we appreciate everything they have done to support us along this journey! We feel so very lucky to have had the honor of working with them."
