Spokane, WA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Pacific Northwest Behavior 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 Pacific Northwest Behavior we take pride in providing ethical, effective behavioral services of the highest quality,” said Co-Owner Stephen Sykora. “We are honored to receive the BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation,” said Co-Owner Kourtney Pickens, “As we grow, we are excited to continue to support our clients and their families through innovative, evidence-based care.”
