Mississippi Behavior Services Earns 2-Year BHCOE Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Southaven, MS – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Mississippi Behavior Services 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 with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey and an anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only applied behavior 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 MBS, we strive to connect families by educating them on the special needs and gifts that their children have been given,” said Executive Director Vargas Clark. “Earning BHCOE Accreditation is a reflection of our team’s commitment to providing the highest quality of service to our students. It has been our privilege to “Make Meaningful Change” for the individuals that we have served, and for the ones that we will eventually serve.”

About Mississippi Behavior Services
MBS started as an early intervention center with the primary goal to prepare students for kindergarten. We collaboratively work with our students’ parents and their school system to provide comprehensive supports to address all needs and concerns. Students face new challenges within the classroom that cannot be replicated fully within an early intervention center. We began partnering with local school districts to perform assessments, generate behavior plans, train teaching staff, and educate students on social awareness. MBS experienced yet another metamorphosis when our early intervention program students were now graduating and needed assistance transitioning as adults. MBS then began to serve the needs of adults living and working within the community. The vision of MBS, “Making Meaningful Change” is something that was invoked within the company even before we realized it. For more information, visit https://msbehaviorsvcs.com/.
