ABS Kids Earns 3-Year BHCOE Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
ABS Kids has earned a prestigious 3-year accreditation from the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE)! An accreditation from the BHCOE distinguishes ABS Kids as excelling in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications, and family satisfaction in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA). Quality is one of the six core values that ABS Kids upholds. This 3-year accreditation validates and reinforces our dedication to this core value. When quality, individualized ABA is provided, the children with autism and their families experience the benefits!
"The BHCOE accreditation standards set the bar high for ethical behavior and practices. Because of our collective focus on improving patient outcomes, ongoing professional development in evidence-based practices, and refinement of company-wide operational systems, ABS Kids is recognized as a leader in quality services!" - Chanti Waters, VP of Quality Assurance
The three-year accreditation is the highest level of accreditation offered by the BHCOE. ABS Kids has held an accreditation from the BHCOE since 2016 and has recently achieved a prestigious three-year accreditation. This shows that ABS Kids provides the highest level of clinical quality verified by our industry’s accrediting body.
BHCOE is proud to grant reaccreditation to ABS Kids. Once again, they have demonstrated their commitment to the highest standards of quality for the community and their staff. ABS Kids has worked tirelessly to ensure their patients have access to the outstanding care they deserve.” - Sara Litvak, CEO, BHCOE.
An accreditation from the BHCOE also showcases ABS Kids as an employer of choice. Paid training, continuing education courses, and tuition reimbursement are just a few ways ABS Kids assures that they support their behavior intervention team in the field. Both quality care and clinician retention increase when they are supported in their work and have been provided opportunities to learn and grow.
“The BHCOE accreditation is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the excellent care provided by Behavior Analysts and Behavior Technicians across the entire company. Earning a 3-year accreditation speaks volumes to the fact that we have a heavy emphasis on quality and ethical practices.”- Maren Jacobson, UT Regional Director
Thank you to all the families and ABS Kids clinicians that took the time to participate in the BHCOE audit process. The 2022 accreditation information gathered in the form of surveys and interviews will help guide the direction of ABS Kids’ initiatives and help us provide even better care moving forward. ABS Kids is honored to continue to help children with autism and their families reach milestones and realize their potential through providing quality ABA intervention.
