Beyond Expectations (B.E.) was initiated by colleagues that noticed a lack of quality and comprehensive services within the community. Together we explored these deficits with a "person in the environment lens" and tackled barriers to support you in unlocking your desired life.
B.E. was founded on principles of diversity, inclusion and, community. B.E. provides Adaptive Skills Training to children, adolescents, and adults. We work with individuals with a variety of developmental and intellectual disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and those with OCD and ADHD; as well as with speech and language delays.
We look forward to building on your current skills and unleashing your potential. United we can foster growth and create opportunities towards prosperity!
I am Ty Tucker, the Director of Beyond Expectations (BE). My objective is to provide updated evidence-based practices and research to individuals and families with developmental disabilities.

We collaborate with leading professionals in the field of developmental disabilities as well as community members to ensure service and program quality.

We aim to provide interventions that go beyond meeting your current objectives but, maximizing everything you are meant to BE. We look forward to partnering with you.
I am a graduate from California State University Northridge with a master's degree in Social Work. I received my undergraduate degree in Human Services from University of Phoenix. Throughout my education I have acquired skills, that I believe, is suitable for ensuring that I am providing quality care and support to consumers and their families. I am empathetic to consumers needs and understand how impacted their day to day lives can be. Within this I also have been able to identify their resilience and how important it is for me to show them how much they can achieve. I take pride in working with this population and advocating for their needs.
I have numerous years of experience providing services to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. I first began as a Supported Living Instructor for a NLACRC vendor providing services to adults to teach them daily living skills and support their integration into the community. I attained more experience as an Consumer Services Coordinator (CSC) for the transition and early start units. Within my time as a CSC I was able to coordinate services for the continuity of care and further my avocation for the needs of my consumers. I enjoyed being able to follow though on my consumers care and ensure their needs were being met. Having the experience of Early Start and Transition allowed for me to see the needs of consumers over the span of infancy to early adulthood.
In addition I was a clinical therapist with an agency contracted through the Department of Mental Health, where I provided therapy to children and teenagers whom are dual diagnosed. Many of whom either have regional center services or are in the assessment process. As aforementioned I have many years working within this population and my passion is to be a driving force in identifying the consumers needs, meeting those identified needs and assisting in the consumer sustaining the change needed for each of them to be active within their community. I am dedicated to assisting, advocating and doing what is best to better the needs of each consumer I encounter; part of this entails that I remain ethical and ensure that all services are tailored to the client's needs.
