Behavior TLC Earns 2-Year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence Accreditation

Houston, TX – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded Behavior TLC Behavior Therapy & Learning Center with a 2-year Accreditation, recognizing the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The Accreditation celebrates 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.

“The clinical and organizational practices of Behavior TLC reflect their commitment to providing top-quality care,”” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE. “Their highly-qualified staff provides services that compassionately and effectively support clients and their families. We are very excited to congratulate owners Jennifer Strickland and John Pugh and their dedicated team on running an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program that is a very valuable resource for the Houston area autism community and beyond.”

BHCOE is an international accrediting body used to help funders and identify quality behavioral health providers. 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 awards only those service agencies that meet these standards.

“At Behavior TLC, we believe in providing individualized programs to effectively and ethically serve each of our clients. Our team is passionate about providing high-quality, evidence-based care,” said Jennifer Strickland, MA, BCBA, “We are very proud to receive this Accreditation because it reflects our commitment to always improving the services we provide and our dedication to striving for the highest standards.”

“We are thankful to our fantastic team that allows us to help clients make meaningful social, behavioral, and academic progress,” said John Pugh, MA, BCBA, “And we look forward to continuing to support the Houston community for years to come.”
