Including Kids Earns 3-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
HUMBLE, Texas, November 15, 2018 (Newswire.com) - BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Including Kids with a 3-Year Reaccreditation, 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.
“Including Kids has continued to demonstrate an incredible dedication to clinical quality and utilization of best practices in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Including Kids originally earned BHCOE Accreditation in 2017 and their 3-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation highlights their commitment to holding themselves to rigorous standards and consistently striving to offer evidence-based services of the highest quality,” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE. “We are excited to commend Executive Director, Jennifer Dantzler, and her team on running an ethical and effective program that is an integral resource for the Greater Houston area autism community and beyond.”
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.
“At Including Kids, we are excited to receive BHCOE Reaccreditation because it reflects our dedication to providing the best care possible. We are thankful for our hard-working team of highly qualified professionals who continue to strive for excellence so that our clients and their families can make meaningful, positive change,” said Jennifer Dantzler, M.S.Ed., BCBA, LBA. “We look forward to continuing to provide top-quality comprehensive behavior analysis services to Harris County and the surrounding counties for years to come.”
