Arizona Autism United Earns 3-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Phoenix, AZ – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Arizona Autism United with a 3-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 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.
“The mission of Arizona Autism United is to help as many families as possible with individualized supports,” said Founder & CEO Aaron Blocher-Rubin. “BHCOE Accreditation aligns with our vision to become a model autism organization that provides comprehensive services across the lifespan. We believe that every family and person with autism has their individual definition of success, and our job is to help them get there.”

About Arizona Autism United
Arizona Autism United was founded in 2006 by current CEO Dr. Aaron Blocher-Rubin and a group of local families who were experiencing firsthand a shortage of quality care. Their concept was to develop a nonprofit organization whose sole focus was providing high-quality direct services and supports to children and families in our community, so that anyone in need could get help. What has made AZA United unique from the beginning is the organization’s focus on involving the families we serve in the process of building and improving the organization. Arizona Autism United has grown from a staff of 1 to 500, serving hundreds of children every day throughout the valley with a wide variety of therapies and supports. Parents continue to lead the way as board members, committee leaders, and volunteers. We believe that involving families at all levels is the key to improving service delivery systems and child outcomes, both now and for the future. Together, we are helping today and building tomorrow. For more information visit https://azaunited.org/.
