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

Summerville, SC – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Building Independence Together 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 Independence Together, our mission is to enable each individual to reach his or her potential and we are grateful for our team of highly qualified professionals who work collaboratively towards that goal. We are honored to earn the BHCOE Accreditation because it reflects our commitment to constant growth and improvement to best help each client reach new levels of independence,” said Executive Director Kerianne Krause, “We take great pride in providing services that are personal and evidence and we are excited to continue to provide comprehensive behavior analysis services of the highest quality for years to come.”
