A.S.C.E.N.T. - Advocacy, Social Skills, Career Exploration, Networking and Transitions

From the The Price Center

July 22, 2014

The ASCENT program is a non-profit, skills-focused afternoon program for people ages 16-30 living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The program is now accepting applications for 2014-2015 enrollments.

It should be noted that The Price Center is prepared to provide behavioral structure, particularly for those on the autism spectrum. However, they are not equipped to provide intensive behavioral support. All prospective participants will have a screening preformed to make sure that the ASCENT program is the right fit for the individual and his/her family.

If you need clarification about this description, please email Karen Manning at kmanning@barrypricecenter.org or call her at 617-332-7477 x 222.
