To attain Praesidium Accreditation, Oaklawn Academy underwent a rigorous risk assessment to review and scrutinize eight primary operational areas within its business, including: policies, screening and selection, training, monitoring and supervision, consumer participation, feedback systems, responding and administrative systems. Assessment results were benchmarked against 800 best practice standards and empirically based data collection methods to assess the risk of abuse in an organization.
