All Kids First Earns 2-Year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence Accreditation

Berkeley Lake, GA – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded All Kids First with a 2-Year Accreditation, recognizing the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The BHCOE 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.

“All Kids First’s clinical and organizational practices reflect their commitment to providing top-quality care that is matched by equal accessibility. Their ethical, effective care helps their clients to make meaningful progress and elevates the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA),” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE. “We are pleased to congratulate All Kids First’s Founder and Executive Director Nicky Altikulac, MS, BCBA, and her highly-qualified, compassionate team on creating a program that is a truly indispensable resource to the Berkeley Lake 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.

“All Kids First is delighted to join the network of BHCOE providers in demonstrating the highest standard of care in treatment and consumer/employee satisfaction,” says Founder and Executive Director Nicky Altikulac, MS, BCBA, “We pride ourselves on the empowerment and involvement of families and caregivers and offer a culturally diverse and culturally sensitive treatment approach. When disseminating the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), we work to incorporate various languages, customs, and traditions when considering the client’s needs, strengths, and preferences in the design of an effective treatment program. All Kids First has been ‘Enhancing Children’s Potential’ since 2004 and we look forward to continuing to do so for years to come.”
