"Every child is gifted, they just unwrap their potential at different times"

In the Best Interest of the Child
We're here to help.




Dr. Alston founded B.E.T.A. in 1999 to respond to the charter schools' increasing awareness for special education support, school psychological services, and educational consultation. Located in Philadelphia, we offer a wide range of services to enhance your student's educational experience, empower staff and parents.


B.E.T.A integrates mindfulness training with data-driven and evidence-based services. Our goal is to infuse understanding and compassion within all staff for all students. We also advocate for balanced learning enclaves by creating an inspiring educational environment.


With over forty years of experience, and thousands of student assessments, teachings, and research, B.E.T.A. Inc developed the C.H.A.N.G.E model, a multitiered learning approach so that every child can access their fullest potential. For more than two decades, and servicing more than 25% of the charter schools in Philadelphia and surrounding areas, B.E.T.A. has a proven track record of positively impacting the lives of hundreds of parents, and children and an impressive number of charter schools.


B.E.T.A  offers your educational community over four decades of expertise and a uniquely solution-oriented approach to enhance and enlighten your educational community.
