First Leap Pediatric Therapy Earns 2-Year BHCOE Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Austin, TX – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized First Leap Pediatric 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 behavior 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.
“Everyone at First Leap Pediatric Therapy is so excited to have earned a 2-year BHCOE Accreditation,” Owner Laura Kruse. “We’ve been working hard toward this milestone and are eager to continue to provide quality ABA services to our families in the Austin area.”
