Brain Balance Achievement Center of Wichita, KS has become a Board Certified Cognitive Center (BCCC), designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).
“Professional training is incredibly important in our industry, and IBCCES has standardized training and certification that is globally recognized,” said Dr. Rebecca Jackson, Vice President of Programs and Outcomes at Brain Balance Achievement Centers. “We worked closely with the IBCCES team to develop instruction that meets the needs of our more than 100 centers. This new training program will give our team an even greater understanding as they work with students who face challenges with attention and focus, anxiety, learning, socialization and more.”
Brain Balance offers a personalized, drug-free program that provides answers to social, emotional, behavioral and academic development. Brain Balance was founded in 2007 and employs a personalized and integrative approach through sensory engagement, physical development, academics and nutrition. The Center has demonstrated their commitment to providing the best possible service by completing the IBCCES certification, which requires that at least 80% of student-facing staff at each location complete an individual professional training and certification program that focuses on working with individuals with anxiety, dyslexia, autism and ADHD.
“At Brain Balance of Wichita, we are dedicated to helping the parents of the greater Wichita area understand the ‘why?’ behind their child’s struggles. Not only can we explain what is happening, but we can address the root causes of those issues without the use of medication. The process to become a Board Certified Cognitive Center has greatly enhanced the knowledge of our already well-trained staff, adding additional knowledge and skills to help our students. We are honored to be able to watch the transformations in these children and know that their lives will be forever changed because of our program,” said Dr. Michelle Robertson, co-owner and Executive Director.
Brain Balance of Wichita collaborates with local clinicians and schools to ensure that their shared students are reaping the benefits of all the community has to offer. Brain Balance of Wichita regularly participates in local events geared towards children and holds quarterly educational panels free and open to the public, on a variety of developmental, behavioral and academic topics; and always welcomes the opportunity to speak to parent or educator groups at schools. Over the past 3 years, they have helped hundreds of families in the Center, conducted numerous area presentations and workshops, sponsored area sports teams and child-focused organizations, and instituted a local Teacher of the Month campaign that recognizes teachers in the greater Wichita area who are making a difference in the lives of students.
For almost 20 years, IBCCES has been the industry leader in cognitive disorder training and certification for healthcare, education and corporate professionals around the globe.
“IBCCES is proud to work with an organization that recognizes the need for ongoing professional training. Because Brain Balance works with children with a variety of needs and cognitive disorders, the Board Certified Cognitive Center program was a perfect fit,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
