The Work We Do

Delivering The Global Standard For Training and Certification in The Field of Cognitive Disorders

IBCCES provides a series of certifications that empower professionals to be leaders in their field and improve the outcomes for the individuals they serve. These programs are recognized around the world as the leading benchmark for training and certification in the areas of autism and other cognitive disorders.


1 out of 36 children are diagnosed with autism in the US (varies globally) and 1 in 10 are diagnosed with ADHD. This rapidly growing population dramatically increases the challenges for educators. Our training and certifications ensure teachers are equipped with the knowledge and best practices to improve learning outcomes. Our innovative use of technology and user-friendly format makes it possible for us to provide this training across the globe.


Our specialized training and certifications build upon therapists’ and healthcare providers’ current education to make significant gains toward improved communication and outcomes in clients and patients with autism or other needs. As a result, healthcare professionals are able to increase the quality of care, reduce the cost of delivering services, and ultimately serve patients more effectively.

Travel & Entertainment

IBCCES recognized that many families with autistic children or those with other sensory sensitivities may face challenges or hesitation when visiting a new attraction or destination. In response to this need, IBCCES created training and certification programs specifically for the hospitality and attractions.


We help our corporate partners educate their staff to ensure appropriate accommodations and next-level service are provided to their clients and visitors with cognitive disorders. We also provide training and certification to ensure workplaces are attracting, hiring, and retaining neurodivergent professionals, whether those are new hires or already working within the organization. This focus should be included in every Diversity Equity and Inclusion initiative across industries.

Public Safety

Our Law Enforcement & First Responder programs cover topics such as common signs or behaviors that someone may be autistic, empathy and understanding, sensory sensitivities, communication tips, safety concerns such as elopement and drowning, and other scenario-based best practices.
