The team at NewYork-Presbyterian's Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB) partners with other members of the NewYork-Presbyterian Autism Task Force and organizations in our community who share our commitment to helping people with autism spectrum disorders and their families achieve the best lives possible. Through outreach efforts, educational events, and fundraising initiatives, our team engages with our neighbors to promote autism awareness.
Supporting Autism Speaks
Staff, clinicians, and leaders of CADB participated in the Westchester/Fairfield Autism Speaks walk in October 2021 on the campus of Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York. Our team raised funds that will ultimately make a difference in the lives of people with autism.
Virtual autism awareness fairs
CADB has co-chaired two Autism Awareness Virtual Community Outreach Fairs, following the successful in-person 2019 fair. The 2020 virtual fair was held in October and the 2021 virtual fair took place in April. The goal of these events is to introduce nonprofit partner organizations and educate fair attendees about autism resources available in New York City and surrounding communities.
Connecting with our community
The CADB team members have shared information about CADB and about autism at locations throughout Westchester County, such as hosting a table in the White Plains Public Library during Autism Awareness Month. Our team has participated in local community agency conferences and workshops at sites such as Mercy College. We have also opened our doors to patients and families for our annual holiday party and hope to do so again after the pandemic is over.
