team working together

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, mental health, dyslexia, and other cognitive disorders.

    • 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.

    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 44 children are diagnosed with autism and 1 in 11 are diagnosed with ADHD. This rapidly growing population dramatically increases the challenges for educators. Our training and certifications ensure teachers are armed 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.


    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.
