Regional Centers for Autism Spectrum Disorders

NYSRCASD
A partnership of six university-affiliated programs across New York State with an overarching goal of identifying, disseminating, and assisting in the implementation of evidence-based practices to build capacity to improve services and outcomes for children and youth with autism spectrum disorders.

Our Mission

The Regional Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders at Old Westbury (RCASD Old Westbury) is a university affiliated resource center that brings research and practice together in community settings. RCASD Old Westbury provides evidence-based training and support to families and professionals, and through ongoing research, contributes knowledge to the field of autism spectrum disorders.


School District Workshops

School District Workshops are designed for school professionals that disseminate information on effective programs, including, but not limited to, individualized supports and services and specialized curricula designed to address the skill deficits of students with autism spectrum disorders (i.e., social relationships and communication).

The goal of the workshops are to provide participants with an understanding of essential components of educational programs to better prepare them to develop effective educational interventions for students with autism spectrum disorders.

Family Workshops

Although awareness of autism is spreading as more children are diagnosed, there are still many questions that need to be answered. As a parent of a child who has been diagnosed with an ASD, you may have concerns about how to help your child become more independent. The Family Workshops are to assist families on the journey from adolescence to adulthood.

If you would like to request or schedule a workshop, please contact us for more information.
