Autism Services of Kansas Earns 3-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Shawnee, KS – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Autism Services of Kansas 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 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 behavior 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.
“Autism Services of Kansas is comprised of individuals who are passionate about working together to improve the lives of the children and families they serve by using evidence-based interventions, founded on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive program to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by autism,” said co-owners Melissa Cline and Eileen Madelen. “Our team is proud to receive this national Award of Distinction from the BHCOE.
