The Chapman Ability Project (C.A.P.) is evolving! We are becoming part of The Center for Ability and Disability (C4RAD) and partnering with The Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorder's Education and Training Division. Although our name is changing, our mission will remain to advance the expertise of educators, service providers, community members and parents working and living with children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Developing great educators and clinicians is an important part of creating a better system of care for children and youth with special needs and their families. Through our new partnerships we will dramatically increase our ability to provide educational and training opportunities to enhance the knowledge and skills and strengthen the practice of those serving our youth in the schools and in clinical settings.
