May Institute Earns Three-year Accreditation From BHCOE, National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement

02/3/21


Randolph, Mass. – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded May Institute a three-year BHCOE 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 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.

“May Institute proudly serves individuals across the lifespan with autism spectrum disorder, intellectual or developmental disability, and neurological and related disorders to increase independence and quality of life,” said Ivy Chong, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Senior Vice President of Children’s Services. “We strive to produce meaningful impact using applied behavior analysis. BHCOE Accreditation is a reflection of our commitment to excellence and quality assurance. We provide compassionate educational, therapeutic, habilitative, and consulting services grounded in evidence-based practice.”
