Within Reach – Center for Autism Receives Behavioral Health Center of Excellence Accreditation

New Orleans, LA – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has recognized Within Reach with a 1-Year Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The BHCOE Accreditation recognizes exceptional behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, and consumer satisfaction. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.

“Within Reach is a wonderful example of dedication to high-quality care,” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE. “They clearly strive for clinical excellence while utilizing current best practices in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and are dedicated to the clients they serve. We are excited to congratulate Director Emily Bellaci and her fantastic team on running a program that is truly an incredible resource for the New Orleans Metro Area community and beyond.”

BHCOE Accreditation is the only 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.

“At Within Reach Center for Autism, we strive to support our clients and their families through a well-rounded approach,” said Director Emily Bellaci, LBA, BCBA, MA, “We are honored and excited to receive the BHCOE Accreditation because it reflects our commitment to providing ethical, effective care that helps our clients to make meaningful progress and improve their quality of life. We’re grateful to have a dedicated and compassionate staff that is committed to helping our clients achieve success and made achieving this Accreditation possible.”
