About Ascend Autism

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.

Importantly, all interventions used at Ascend Autism ABA Therapy Center are rooted in evidence-based practices (EBPs). This simply means the intervention has been tested in scientific studies and published in scientific journals. The results show these intervention practices are more helpful and produce better outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder. We are focused on the continued success of each child and supporting every family on their individualized journey.

Our autism spectrum disorder treatment programs for children include:
