It’s all big when you’re changing the world.

Many Asian-American families who have children with disabilities in the New York area face significant challenges getting the information and services their children need due to language and cultural barriers, and a lack of systemic support . CIDA was created to help.

Our goal is for individuals with disabilities to be able to live self-determined lives, contributing as valuable members of the community. Our federally-recognized programs empower individuals with disabilities and their families to obtain the education and services they need. We also provide inclusion and economic opportunity for young adults with disabilities, and host events to shift the community’s perspective on disability. Our work has benefited more than 350 families to date.
