Aurora Behavior Services Earns BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement

Eagle River, AK – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Aurora Behavior Services  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 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 behavior 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 Aurora Behavior Services, we’re proud to have a team of compassionate, knowledgeable, and skilled staff who have made earning BHCOE Accreditation possible,” said Aurora Behavior Services owner Kelly Forestal. “We are also thankful for the families of our clients, who are partners in the behavior change process. Last but not least, we pursued this accreditation for our clients, who deserve nothing but the very best and who are the reason we love our work.”
