ACQ Accreditation Workshop for Healthcare Organizations

Thursday, September 28, 2023
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM (EDT)

Hosted on Zoom

Event Details


Individuals impacted by autism deserve access to the highest level of care to help them reach their full potential. Interventions based in applied behavior analysis (ABA) are widely recognized by numerous scientific, professional, and governmental organizations as the most effective form of treatment for autism. However, there are significant barriers preventing patients from accessing high-quality ABA services. These challenges range from provider expertise and availability to misplaced financial incentives to standardization of practices within the industry. The field is at a critical juncture where it needs to embrace quality standards from a trusted source. The Autism Commission on Quality (ACQ) is the only non-profit accreditation program for applied behavior analysis (ABA) service providers. ACQ accreditation is a designation of quality available to any eligible healthcare organization regardless of their membership status with the Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP). During this workshop, attendees will be introduced to ACQ’s accreditation standards and the application process.

3 BACB Ethics CEUs are offered for participation in the webinar
