The Redmond-based center serves children with autism and other neuro-developmental disabilities to help them acquire lifelong skills for a productive and meaningful life through Applied Behavior Analysis. This is done by providing a comprehensive treatment plan and executing that plan with the client and their family in a clinic environment and also in the home when needed.

“At Eastside ABA, we take pride in the dedication and strength of our team, organizational integrity, and commitment to producing behavioral, social, and academic outcomes for our clients,” said Eastside ABA executive director Paul Johnson. “We are thrilled to be honored by BHCOE with this Award of Distinction and our team looks forward to providing ethical and effective behavioral services throughout the Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond area for years to come.”

The BHCOE award is earned by exceptional special needs providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, as well as client satisfaction. These categories are measured through a wide-ranging audit which includes interviews with the provider’s clinical leadership, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and an anonymous consumer satisfaction survey ensuring only the most elite providers make the cut.
