Our Program

Since 2013, the Autism Academy for Education and Development (AAED) has opened three campuses in the Metro Phoenix area and one campus in the Tucson area. Our entire program is now offered online for remote learning. Our teaching staff is equipped and trained to provide an environment for learning through use of different and adaptable curriculums, small group instruction, structured classrooms, schedules and a variety of specials to keep students engaged in learning. Students collaborate, communicate, think, experiment, and reflect throughout each day. The strategies utilized by our staff are aimed at providing students with the skills and knowledge to make decisions, to be successful in school, and to open doors for career development.
