Welcome to ASCEND

(Autism Spectrum Center for Educational Neurological Development)

ABOUT

The ASCEND school was founded in 2007 by Keith and Angela Levin, whose child, Cade, is affected by Autism. Living in a rural community in Arizona, they started the school after a challenging journey finding proper support for him. Now, a decade later they have helped more than fifty children to learn skills and have fulfilling daily purpose.

EDUCATIONAL SERVICES

ASCEND is a K-12 school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related disabilities. We structure our program on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles. We help children of all levels of the spectrum. Don’t think that your child may not fit in here because they are “high-functioning”. Meet with us and we’ll determine together if we are a good fit!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

ASCEND is an Arizona non-profit organization and always looking for great volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering your time or donating your goods & services to ASCEND, please click the icon above.

Mission

Our mission is to view the child first and the disorder second, and strive to meet the individual needs of each child. We believe that each child must be nurtured to at all levels – physically, emotionally, spiritually, and educationally. We also believe that family input is the cornerstone to the success of the school.

Parents are an integral part of the programming choices, fundraising, and community events. The ultimate goal is that each child and family affected by autism will find a strong support system with us.
