Eastside Social Skills Therapy Earns 2-Year BHCOE Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Issaquah, WA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Eastside Social Skills Therapy with a 2-Year 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 consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and an 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.
“At Eastside Social Skills Therapy, we’re committed to continuous improvement as an organization and work hard to benefit the autism community,” said Owner Penny Lathum. “It’s an honor to have earned BHCOE Accreditation and we look forward to continuing to serve our families with quality and ethical care in Issaquah and surrounding areas.”

About Eastside Social Skills Therapy
Eastside Social Skills Therapy has program managers who are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) who will meet with new families and help them set up an intervention program in their home. Each child then has a customized plan that will work for their individual needs, as every child and family is different and unique. The program manager’s role is to develop, train and supervise the child’s program. Behavior technicians follow the plan developed by the program manager and they do the actual 1:1 intervention with the child. Once a child is ready to transition into their school district we can assist with selecting the right placement for that child. For more information, visit www.eastsidesocialskills.com.
