Irving, TX – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized the Brent Woodall Foundation for Exceptional Children with a 2-Year Reaccreditation, 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. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only Applied Behavioral Analysis (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.

About Brent Woodall Foundation for Exceptional Children
The Brent Woodall Foundation uses the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach and improve the level of functioning in children with autism. Children with developmental disabilities often have serious deficits (i.e. none or limited expressive/receptive language, limited social skills, limited independent living skills, etc.) and ABA has been used to teach a variety of skills to overcome such deficits. In addition, ABA has been shown to successfully decrease behavioral excess (i.e. aggressive behaviors, tantrum behaviors, etc.) often demonstrated by children with autism. ABA uses rewards to engage children and teach them new skills. The therapy involves a breaking down of skills into small, discrete, and measurable tasks that are taught through a highly structured clinical method. ABA is the only intervention empirically proven to provide results. What makes their approach unique is not only are the programs clinically individualized to address each child’s particular cognitive problems, social deficits, and behavioral issues, but they also take into consideration the roles various family members can play in the treatment of the child. All services provided by the Foundation are offered at little to no cost. Their programs show families how to connect with their children not only by educating them about autism and other developmental disabilities but also by providing them with the technical training necessary to understand their child’s treatment programs and how to carry these programs out at home.
