About Us

In 1979, the New York State Association of Day Treatment Providers (NYSADSTP) was founded as a non-profit consortium of human service providers representing providers of services to people with disabilities throughout New York State.

In 1995, the NYSADTP reorganized to include other day service providers and the NYSADSP was born. The New York Association of Day Service Providers provides technical support and training to member agencies from New York City to Buffalo.

The Association is devoted to:

Disseminating information

Advocating for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Promoting Program Development and Staff Education

Providing Technical Assistance

Maintaining a Liaison to State and Local Governments

The NYSADSP is lead by a Board of Directors that is made up of professionals who volunteer their time.  This professional staff bring hundreds of combined years of experience working with individuals with disabilities. The NYSADSP is comprised of six regions, with each region having its own informational meetings and staff training programs. In addition to this, the NYSADSP hosts an Annual Statewide multi-day Symposium in the fall.

In addition to the many training and informational meetings, the NYSADSP annually awards Mary Frawley grants for the funding of innovative ideas and services, recognizes exemplary staff by awarding  Leadership and Direct Support Professional of the Year awards and provides members with access to necessary resources.
