BCBA Leadership & Certified ABA Therapists

Dedicated to life-changing ABA therapy and early autism intervention.

Our Mission is to help children and their families succeed.

Building on our years of experience working with children with ASD, our BCBAs are inspired to overcome the challenges and barriers to life-changing therapy and maximize families’ quality of life. We leverage our expertise and partner with parents, providers, schools, community groups, and insurance plans to create new opportunities, one child at a time.

When you partner with Ascend Behavior Partners, you benefit from the leadership of a Licensed Child Psychologist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with deep expertise treating children with Autism and developmental delays. Additionally, our BCBAs average some of the highest years of experience in the field. We answer only to our clients and our community, ensuring the highest quality services and ethics. We focus all our resources and efforts on what matters most: your child’s progress.

ABA therapy care plans are guided by our three pillars:

INTEGRATION

We enhance the quality of your experience with seamless access to support and resources you need, when you need them. This care coordination enables us to accelerate learning outcomes with continuity of care and evidence-based decisions for all care providers.

Experience Matters

While every child benefits from treatment as early as possible, interaction with an experienced BCBA is measurably different. Our BCBAs average 10 years of experience in the field, which increases a child’s learning by 40% (Dixon et al, 2016).
