Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
SAN RAMON, Calif., August 6, 2018 (Newswire.com) - BHCOE Accreditation has recognized GOALS for Autism with a 1-Year Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a behavioral service provider dedicated to continuous improvement in Applied Behavior Analysis. BHCOE Accreditation recognizes behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications, and consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
“GOALS for Autism is a great example of an organization providing valuable resources for families. Their dedication and hard work help to enhance the practices of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA),” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE. “We are excited to congratulate GOALS for Autism’s CEO, Adryon Ketcham, M.A., BCBA, LBA, their Director of Clinical Services, Diana Richardson, and the entire team at GOALS on creating a program that excels in their treatment programming and planning and offers great support for families.

BHCOE Accreditation is the only Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards.
