From Our Principal
“Children with autism struggle in regular school. They often have difficulty making friends, following the “social curriculum,” or just generally struggling to adapt to the rigid demands of school.
Ascend is different: It’s a comfortable place where kids with autism can be themselves. And we just cant do it without you.
Our kids deserve to live without fear of social isolation. They deserve a welcoming environment, where every single staff member is a highly-trained autism professional and understands their needs. And they deserve a compassionate, supportive environment designed with autism in mind.
But as you can imagine, it’s expensive to provide such a highly specialized environment for free. So please, give what you’re able to give. And make a real, life-changing difference in the lives of kids who need you.”
