ADYS is the abbreviation of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) Regional Secretariat for Asia (RSA) Youth Section (YS), which was established in 2008. ADYS is formally known as the Asia Pacific Youth Section, which was later changed to Asia Deaf Youth Section.
The Youth Section of the Asia Region between 2008 and 2012 was known as APYS. Since the WFDRSA/P changed to WFDRSA in 2012, APYS was changed to ADYS. The ADYS board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
