What We Do...
Ascendigo Autism Services is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in the Roaring Fork Valley near Aspen, Colorado. We provide opportunities for growth and independence for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Beginning in 2004 with our summer sports camp (formerly Extreme Sports Camp), Ascendigo has since expanded to offer employment services, in-home behavioral therapy, and life coaching. Our organization offers three core programs: Adventures, Life Enrichment, and Outreach. Our goal is to integrate people with autism into community life recreationally and socially, whether through adventure sports, basic life skills, compatible employment in local companies, or community engagement. In addition to our programs, Ascendigo educates members of our community about autism, what can be done to make living with autism better and easier, and how important it is for individuals with autism to live a life with dignity, purpose, and respect.
