Ascend Autism is elevating the outcomes of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Ascend Autism was founded by a highly qualified team of healthcare operators and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). With over a decade of experience, Ascend Autism provides children and families with evidence-based ABA treatment in a compassionate and safe environment.
