2023 Yes Day for Autism

Autism Academy

Around the time Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) was founded, the incidence of an autism diagnosis was 1 in 500; today it is 1 in 36.

This year, our Team is participating YES Day for Autism to raise critical autism funding not only for SARRC but for other nonprofit autism organizations throughout the state as well. Importantly, all dollars raised will be kept in Arizona for Arizona

YES Day for Autism is as much about saying “yes” to autism awareness, support, and inclusion as it is to saying “yes” to statewide collaboration. Every dollar raised will help the state expand from Phoenix as “the most autism-friendly city” to Arizona as “the most autism-friendly state.”

Autism Academy for Education and Development (AAED) specializes in providing education to students with autism, Kindergarten to 12th grade. Low teaching staff to student ratios are maintained to maximize individual attention as well as address the needs of each student. At AAED, your child will learn academic content along with Music, Art, PE, Life Skills, and Technology.

Students are engaged with hands-on teachers who provide a multi-sensory approach to learning and real-world experiences. All instruction is presented in an atmosphere designed for learning, acceptance of others, compassion, and encouragement.
