Building Bridges Earns 2-Year BHCOE Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement

Portland, OR – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Building Bridges with a 2- Year 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 via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.

BHCOE Accreditation is the only Applied Behavioral 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.

“At Building Bridges, we understand every child is unique and our team of highly-qualified professionals works together to provide top-quality and individualized programming. We are committed to helping each child reach his or her potential through evidence-based care,” said Co-Owner and Executive Director Elizabeth Mishler, “We are proud to earn BHCOE Accreditation because it reflects our dedication to providing comprehensive, compassionate behavior analysis service to create meaningful change for our clients and their families. We look forward to continuing to provide ABA services of the highest quality for years to come.”
