Tuesday, January 13th, 2015 – Jacksonville, Florida – IBCCES, The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards, is very proud to announce that they have published a list of over 10,000 new jobs for Certified Autism Specialists. IBCCES is the certification board for the Certified Autism Specialist program and is eager to assist not only those in search of a fulfilling career in the field of Autism, but more importantly to ensure the highest quality of care and education is provided to individuals with Autism.
As Myron Pincomb, the Board Chairman of IBCCES states, “The rapid increase in the diagnosis of Autism has created a huge shortage of professionals certified in the field. School districts and healthcare organizations all over the country are seeking certified professionals to fill a back log of open positions”.
As the number of individuals diagnosed with Autism continues to increase each year, the amount of certified professionals who are trained and qualified to help them has fallen short. With IBCCES releasing a list of over 10,000 new jobs for Certified Autism Specialists, educators, licensed professionals and healthcare workers can clearly see the potential for career advancement and the rapidly growing need for training and certification in the field of Autism.
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, “An additional 28,000 Speech Language Pathologists will be needed to fill the demand between now and 2020, a 23% increase in job openings. Many of the patients serviced by these SLP’s will be children with Autism”.
