Gift an ASCEND Membership

Great for educators and service providers

Does your child have a teacher who goes above and beyond to accommodate him or her? Maybe there’s a service provider who could benefit from the advantages of an ASCEND membership?

It’s such an easy purchase! And an annual membership shows that you care about them and supporting the autism community. ASCEND provides educators and service providers with region-specific resources, news selected for the ASCEND community, events related to Asperger Syndrome and other ASDs, and much more.

Click here to purchase your gift memberships. (Deadline for holiday gift memberships is postmarked by 12/16.) This year, give a gift that helps our grassroots organization continue to grow.
