Non-Profit in the Spotlight: Ascendigo, Part 1

Feb 1, 2016

Ascendigo has been operating out of the Roaring Fork Valley since 2004. Founded by Sallie Bernard, who now serves as the Board President, the autism services organization has grown from a summer sports camp to a nationally known group that offers a range of outdoor sports programs. 

Bernard is joined by Ascendigo's Clinical Coordinator, Sami Henry, M. Ed., BCBA, to discuss the organization's history and programs.  

About 1 in 68 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder in the United States (2014, CDC).
