Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAKE IN THE HILLS, Ill. - Mar 14, 2019 - BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Harmony Autism Therapy with a 1-Year Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a behavioral service provider dedicated to continuous improvement in the use of Applied Behavior Analysis for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. 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 via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation. It provides a review of 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.
“At Harmony Autism Therapy, we are dedicated to maximizing each child’s potential and making a real difference in each family’s life. Our commitment goes far beyond providing state-of-the-art, effective, and ethical programs. We are passionate about excellence in autism treatment, and that shows through the providers we hire.

About Harmony Autism Therapy
Harmony Autism Therapy provides home-based ABA therapy with a focus on Verbal Behavior. This approach teaches children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) a variety of skills, including increasing language, communication, social, adaptive, and play skills. With this focus, each child is taught the power of using words to communicate rather than cry, scream, or become aggressive. As a result, behavior problems decrease.
