Spectrum Behavioral Therapies Earns BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Anaheim, CA– BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Spectrum Behavioral Therapies 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 behavior 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 Spectrum Behavioral Therapies, we are passionate about what we do,” said CEO Christine Oh-Sung. “Earning BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation reflects our efforts to improve the quality of life for children affected by autism, by striving to provide quality, research-based and effective interventions to match the needs of each unique child. At Spectrum Behavioral Therapies, your child will never be just another client; they will always be our priority.”

About Spectrum Behavioral Therapies
Spectrum Behavioral Therapies was started out of a passion to provide quality, evidence-based, individualized treatment for children and adults with autism and related disorders. At Spectrum, we make a conscientious effort to nurture a team of like-minded behavior interventionists and behavior analysts that are always putting the needs of our clients first. At Spectrum, we hold ourselves to a higher standard when it comes to the quality of services. We recognize the uniqueness of each child and their family and aim to create a treatment program that fits their needs. Spectrum creates comprehensive programs that target skills around social interaction, language, play, motor, academics, adaptive, cognition, and executive functioning. We implement Discrete Trial Training (DTT) and Natural Environment Training (NET) to teach skills. We understand that a skill is not considered “mastered” until the child is able to generalize this skill across other people and settings. Spectrum strongly believes in taking a team approach, including the family, in creating and implementing each of the child’s individual intervention plans. At Spectrum, we also highly encourage collaboration with other professionals (SLPs, OTs, teachers, etc.) to create maximal change. We provide ABA therapy for children with autism and related disorders in Orange County. For more information, please visit https://sbtaba.com/
