BHCOE is a neutral entity that ensures all ABA stakeholders’ interests are represented in the future of the profession and definition of its standards. Oversight committees aid our organization in collaborating across diverse stakeholders within the community to develop standards and advance the field.
BHCOE commission members work together to develop and evaluate ABA standards via a transparent, consensus-based process that allows for participation and comment by all stakeholders. Commission members represent a variety of stakeholders including government agencies, faculty, clinicians, patient-advocates, payers, employers and administrators. These BHCOE Commission members have expertise in a variety of specific behavior analytic disciplines, as well as general expertise in applied behavior analysis research, healthcare, measurement science, statistics, law, and policy.
Person & Family Workgroup (PFW)
BHCOE’s PFW offers the imperative perspective of the person receiving those services or who cares for the person receiving services. PFW members may also offer the important perspective of someone on the autism spectrum. Their role in assisting BHCOE with quality measurement consists of three main objectives including defining ABA quality, selecting the most meaningful quality measures, and supporting development of quality measures.
Quality Measurement Provider Panel (QMPP)
The QMPP contributes to and provides insight on several quality domains, including defining Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) quality, quality measure development, data reporting structures, and value-based payment models. BHCOE’s QMPP comprises individuals with differing areas of expertise and perspectives, including providers of ABA Services for children, adolescents, and adults on the spectrum, providers of ABA Services in home, school, community, and clinic-based settings, providers affiliated with large and smaller organizations, providers with academic background in the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) field, and providers affiliated with BHCOE accredited and non-accredited organizations.
