Community Initiatives

CADB 2023 Walk

New-York Presbyterian Westchester Behavioral Health has hosted the annual Autism Speaks Westchester,/Hudson Valley and Fairfield County Walk for many years. CADB is a proud sponsor and leads the hospital’s team each year. Most recently the staff, clinicians, and leaders of CADB participated in the Walk in October 2023. Team NYP-CADB raised funds that will ultimately make a difference in the lives of people with autism.

Reaching Out

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.

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.
