Bluegrass Center for Autism Earns 1-Year BHCOE Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Louisville, KY – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Bluegrass Center 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 with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and an anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
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.
“It’s been a true privilege to go through the accreditation process and the entire team at Bluegrass Center for Autism is excited about the achievement,” said Christen Byrne, Executive Director. “We’ve all worked diligently to achieve this milestone for our organization.”
