The York ASD Partnership is changing its name!

The York ASD Partnership is changing its name! 150 150 York Community Autism Partnership

Beginning January 15, 2024 our new name will be the 

York Community Autism Partnership (YCAP) 

A New Name for a New Year!   

The former York ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Partnership is very excited to announce our new name 

the 

York Community Autism Partnership.  

As an organization that promotes positive awareness of Autism and is responsive to our community, our new name, the York Community Autism Partnership reflects respect for people with Autism and emphasizes our collaborative community work to enhance the system of supports for people with Autism and their families in York Region. 

Why this subtle change?  

There is a growing discontent amongst self-advocates with Autism, their families and many professionals with the use of the term “disorder” with respect to this neuro-diversity. While Autism Spectrum Disorder remains the official diagnosis in the DSMV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Version V), many people feel that referring to someone as “disordered” in everyday interactions diminishes and disrespects their strengths and abilities and negatively emphasizes the challenges  experienced by people with Autism.
 

Let's get started.
