Accreditation Types

The Behavioral Health Centers of Excellence offers different accreditation options based on various factors and what best serves each ABA organization.

Full Accreditation

Full Accreditation is designed for organizations who actively serve patients and are interested in external peer review and benchmarking. This process includes a review of the organization’s policies and procedures, clinical and administrative systems, clinical practices, and staff and parent/guardian satisfaction. Modifications are made to the verification methods for organizations serving fewer than 25 patients to ensure an equitable evaluation process. Organizations pursuing Full Accreditation are evaluated against the Standards of Excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis Services. Full Accreditation is valid for 2 years and accredited organizations must demonstrate ongoing conformance annually.

Training Site Accreditation

The Training Site Accreditation process is designed for organizations that provide fieldwork experience and training to individuals pursuing certification as behavior analysts. This process includes a review of the organization’s policies and procedures; clinical, training, and administrative systems; clinical and training practices; and staff, trainee, and parent/guardian satisfaction. Organizations pursuing Training Site Accreditation are evaluated against the Standards of Excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis Training Sites and can pursue Training Site Accreditation alone or in combination with BHCOE Full Accreditation. Training Site Accreditation is valid for 2 years and accreditation organizations must demonstrate ongoing conformance annually.

Telehealth Accreditation

The Telehealth Accreditation process is designed for organizations that provide clinical services in a telehealth modality. This process includes a review of the organization’s policies and procedures; clinical, technological, and administrative systems; and privacy and security practices related to the provision of telehealth services. Organizations pursuing Telehealth Accreditation are evaluated against the Standards of Excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis Telehealth Services and can pursue Telehealth Accreditation alone or in combination with the other BHCOE Accreditations. Telehealth Accreditation is valid for 2 years and accredited organizations must demonstrate ongoing conformance annually.
