LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY—The Autism Commission on Quality (ACQ) has opened nominations for its standards committee, accreditations committee, and appeals committee.

ACQ is an accreditation body for autism service providers offering applied behavior analysis (ABA) as a healthcare service. Its essential accreditation decisions are made by independent committees. These committees are comprised of experienced experts and diverse representatives involved in receiving, delivering, supporting, and funding ABA services for autism.

ACQ is accepting nominations from people with experience or expertise in ABA or autism, including consumers, caregivers, providers, executives, support staff, funders, faculty, regulators, and others. Those appointed will serve a two-year committee term.

“Our integrity and success depend on support from the community we serve,” said Erick Dubuque, director of ACQ. “Participation in our nomination process is a great way for our community to get involved in creating and enforcing industry standards.”

Eric Larsson, chair of the ACQ Standards Committee and executive director of clinical services at Lovaas Institute Midwest, said, “ACQ plays a vital role in addressing the serious issues that currently limit access to quality applied behavior analysis services. The many volunteers serving on its committees help ensure that ACQ continues to raise the bar for everyone.”

Interested parties can complete ACQ’s Nomination Survey to nominate themselves or their colleagues.

The deadline is 11:59pm on May 31, 2024.
