Developing Minds Therapy Services
Earns BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement

St. Louis, MO – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Developing Minds Therapy 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 Developing Minds Therapy Services, our mission is to provide distinctive therapy services to create lasting and socially significant changes for children and their families,“ said Clinical Director LenEll Kelley. “It is a huge honor to have earned BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation as this distinction accentuates our aim to offer exceptional services. Our team looks forward to everything we can accomplish together in the years ahead.”
