We believe in the power of relationships.

How we’re different

At Ascend you won’t find our values statements on a coffee mug. They don’t belong there. At Ascend, you will find Ascenders – our internal lingo for our team members – living and celebrating our values through their behaviors.

“Ascend Behavior Partners isn’t just a job. I don’t feel like I’m working FOR a company but WITH a community.”

– Eve, Ascend RBT

You will meet experienced BCBAs who lean into mentoring their RBTs and educating parents. You will encounter RBTs who thrive on autonomy and who seek out dozens of learning opportunities in every hour of play-based, skill-building. You will experience our commitment to becoming 1% better every day.

Partnership

At Ascend, we partner with our employees and give them our full trust; and we integrate growth-oriented, individualized coaching and professional development opportunities into every career path at Ascend. We want you to make contributions to the ABA field and constantly improve your skill set. Our coaches and BCBAs provide the supervision and tools for you to do exactly that.

We partner with parents to teach skill acquisition, coordinate care with the child’s school and other providers, and provide parent training and education to the families we serve. We also offer integrated family services, including counseling, so families can play an active role in positive outcomes. This comprehensive approach is rare in the field and enhances our clinicians’ ability to focus on high-quality client goals and outcomes.

A culture of fun

Working at Ascend has been described by Ascenders as fun, “like coming home,” and incredibly rewarding. Maybe you have worked in the field and experienced burnout with unmanageable caseloads and a lack of support.

Perhaps you are new to the field of ABA and eager to make an impact with a proven care model. Maybe you moved recently and are looking for a new ABA home – a place where you can thrive and grow.

Wherever you are in your professional journey, we want to talk to you about your career goals and life ambitions.

Ascend Behavior Partners Team

We’re recognized as a quality provider


We are a designated Authorized Continuing Education (ACE) provider by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) and a member of the Council of Autism Service Providers. We are proud to hold the highest honor 3-Year Accreditation and Telehealth Accreditation from the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE). We welcome the opportunity to tell you what these mean to us, and why we commit to being a high-quality provider.

Who we are:

We are a community of caregivers. We are creative in our approach and offer a learning and coaching environment.

Our child-centered integrated service model

Ascend’s child-centered, integrated care model stems from our treatment philosophy. We meet the needs of each family system we serve, regardless of socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, race, or language. An integrated service model permits clinicians to provide VB-MAPP based EIBI Autism treatment in new, flexible ways that truly partners with parents.

An innovative approach

Our results with innovative parent support and training methods have shown to reduce family stress and improve outcomes for our clients. Ascend constantly encourages our team to continue to innovate on this progressive approach, giving you autonomy in your practice.

The heart of what we do

The children we serve, ages 1-6, are at the heart of everything we do. Our service model is uniquely integrated in that we leverage interdisciplinary collaboration to support both the child and the entire family.

Our teams

Our Family Support team, led by a leading Licensed Clinical Social Worker, provides parent education, training, and counseling services to maximize clinical and behavioral outcomes.

The Care Navigation team supports the whole family by aligning treatment plans across providers, including SLP and OT services.

Family Concierges remove logistical friction around scheduling, accounting, and insurance matters. Our holistic approach is unique in the field and has been recognized by ACE, CASP, and the BHCOE.

Being a BCBA at Ascend

We have fun working every day to bring joy to the families and children we serve.

Our commitment to your safety during COVID-19

A global pandemic has certainly shaken the world to its core, yet we believe that we have the opportunity to rise stronger than ever. At Ascend, we are committed to delivering in-home ABA services, reducing barriers to success for families living with Autism, and maintaining the safest possible environment for our clients and employees. Our treatment and services are classified as an “Essential Service” by the Department of Homeland Security, the States of Colorado and Arizona, and Harris and Brazos County, Texas.

Essential workers

Our employees are “Essential Workers.” We deeply understand and respect what that means: providing daily, high-quality treatment during a health crisis in clients’ homes. We are steadfast in our commitment to keep you and our clients safe.

At Ascend, we have made every possible investment in your safety and the well-being and health of the families we serve. We continue to adapt our safety protocols to meet the newest standards science can provide us in these uncertain times.

Safety protocols include:

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for each team member
  • Routine temperature checks for clients and staff
  • Regular health screenings of client families before entry

We are humbled by the trust our clients have given us to continue providing essential services during COVID-19.

Above and beyond

At Ascend, we want to honor the trust of both our clients and staff by going above and beyond to ensure absolute safety. That is our commitment to you.
