Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) Accreditation has recognized the Meredith Autism Program 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 consumer satisfaction 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 the Meredith Autism Program, we’re excited to have earned BHCOE Accreditation because it’s a reflection of the high standards we aim for as an organization,” said Director Kathryn Dove. “Providing quality services to the autism community is of utmost importance and we’re eager to continue this mission.”
