Marietta, GA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Village Autism Center with a Preliminary 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 promote systems that enhance these areas. BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation occurs for newer organizations or organizations preparing to meet full accreditation review within a year, prior to a full evaluation. This consists of a high-level review of organizational systems to identify areas for improvement prior to growth.
BHCOE Accreditation and BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation are the only Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)-specific accreditations. 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 Village Autism Center, we are committed to providing our clients and their families high quality, individualized care based in the science of behavior analysis,” said Founder and Executive Director Dr. Caitlin Delfs. “We are proud to receive the BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation because it highlights our dedication to providing our clients with the highest quality of care, as well as serving as a top-notch training center for future behavior analysts, committed to ethical business practices. As we grow, our agency will continue to provide comprehensive ABA services to members of our community.”
