Programs Offered at the Hawthorne Center

All of Ascend Autism’s therapies are individualized to meet each child’s specific needs and delivered through a naturalistic and engaging play-based approach. Our programs are comprehensive to address and promote the core functional capabilities of behavior, communication, social skills and daily living skills.


Every child in our care receives one-on-one therapy and support from ABA-trained Behavior Therapists. All of our programs are overseen and directed by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

Full-day Program

Our full-day ABA program is suited for younger children (18 months to 5 years old) and focuses on developing skills in three main areas: behavior, communication, and social skills. This is a 35-40 hours weekly program and is ideal for working families.

Half-day Program

Our half-day program offers similar benefits of the full-day program in a less intensive format of 20-25 hours per week during either a morning or afternoon session.

After-School Program

This is a center-based program for school-aged children to address behaviors and develop social skills while putting these skills into practice with other children of similar age. The after-school program has limited availability.

NYS EI Group Program

Offered in accordance with NY State’s EI program¹, Ascend Autism offers two-hour sessions, five days per week. These services fit families who are unable to access our ABA services through their insurance

Social Skills Groups

Group programs are integrated into each of our center-based services and an integral part of our full-day and half-day programs. Social skills groups provide daily opportunities for children to practice their developing social and communication skills.

Parent Coaching

These dedicated sessions with your BCBA provides the training and support for parents and other family members to transfer the progress at the center to the home.

Accepted Health Insurance Plans

Ascend Autism’s services and therapy programs are typically covered by your health insurance, and we are proud to be an in-network provider for most plans. Below are a few of the insurances we accept, but please contact us if you have questions about your insurance coverage for our ABA services:

¹ Ascend Autism is an approved and contracted NY EIP provider and all EIP services are provided with no out-of-pocket costs to parents but your health insurance may be accessed. Ascend’s Toddler Developmental Group is a publicly funded program by NY state and the county, available to children under the age of three, who are believed to have a developmental disability. Services can only be provided after eligibility is determined by a state-approved evaluator and if eligible all services are identified in collaboration with parents and authorized by the municipality at which time the municipality will arrange for service providers based on the needs of the child and family. If interested in services, families should call (914) 813-5094.
