How did Ascend Behavior Consultants get started?
Ascend Behavior Consultants was established in 2019 by Ebere Magalit, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). In Ebere's 15 years of working in the behavioral health field, a common disparity was the lack of access to quality therapeutic services in minority communities. After years of experiencing a lack of equity and inclusion within the field, she decided to establish a practice that is committed to providing effective, evidence based treatment for behavioral & mental health to underserved families.
We make the assessment process as seamless as possible
DOES MY CHILD NEED A FORMAL AUTISM DIAGNOSIS TO GET TREATMENT?
Children are not required to have a diagnosis for treatment but children are required to have a formal diagnosis in order to receive coverage from insurance providers.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BCBA AND RBT?
The main difference between the BCBA and RBT is that the BCBA may practice independently and supervises the RBT in his or her practice. A BCBA is responsible for designing and implementing the services that RBTs frequently carried out.
