Who We Are
A Company Of Compassionate Believers
In 2001, IBCCES identified a need for standardization within healthcare, education, and corporate environments to meet the growing needs of those with cognitive disorders. We assembled a board of thought leaders and experts in these fields to address the growing international need and create a series of certification programs in autism, ADHD, sensory disorders, dementia, mental health, dyslexia, and other cognitive disorders and special needs.
Our globally recognized certification programs were established to set the industry standards and create a worldwide community of trained and knowledgeable professionals. As the impact of cognitive disorders now reaches 1 in 4 people, our team continues to grow and expand our reach to ensure professionals in these industries are aware of the latest research and applications.
IBCCES adheres to international standards for boards that grant professional credentials. The IBCCES certification procedures and content undergo various reviews and validation, pursuant to the professions that are eligible for certification, as well as standards established by content experts in the field.
IBCCES Partners with Autism Society for Maximum Accountability and Expanding Reach
The Autism Society is the oldest and largest autism association in the world, with over 1 million members. Membership includes parents, healthcare professionals and educators. There are 82 affiliates in 12 different countries.
The Autism Society and IBCCES are working together to make sure that individuals with autism get the understanding they deserve. The Autism Society has officially reviewed and endorsed both the Certified Autism Specialist (CAS) and Certified Autism Center (CAC) designations. They will be working with IBCCES to provide an independent third party for accountability and improvement so IBCCES can better serve families with individuals with autism and so that those families can visit Certified Autism Centers or work with Certified Autism Specialists with the utmost confidence.
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. As part of our commitment to sharing the latest innovations and research, we host the International Symposium on Cognitive Research and Disorders to create a forum for collaboration among industry stakeholders.
1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism and 1 in 11 are diagnosed with ADHD. This rapidly growing population dramatically increases the challenges for educators around the globe. Our training and certification programs ensure teachers are armed with the knowledge, applications, and best practices they need to improve student learning outcomes. Our innovative use of technology and user-friendly format make it possible for us to provide this training across the globe.
Our specialized training and certifications build upon providers’ current education to make significant gains toward improved communication and outcomes in clients with cognitive disorders. As a result, healthcare professionals are able to increase the quality of care, reduce the cost of delivering services, and ultimately serve more patients in need.
We help our corporate partners design programs and educate their staff to ensure appropriate accommodations and next-level service are provided to their clients with cognitive disorders. Meeting the needs of individuals with cognitive disorders, such as autism, Alzheimer’s and dementia, is not just part of corporate responsibility – it is also one of the fastest growing markets in most industries.
