Brain Balance Achievement Center of Wexford, PA, has become a Board Certified Cognitive Center (BCCC) designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).
“By getting to the root of the problem for our students, we are helping them overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of success. We are honored to be able to watch the transformations in our children and know that their lives will be changed forever because of the Brain Balance Program. Each of us have our own story that personalizes the work that we do and drives our passion for helping our students and families. The process to become a Board Certified Cognitive Center has greatly enhanced this passion and knowledge of our already well-trained staff. With the training we’ve received through IBCCES, our team is even better equipped to positively impact the outcomes for our students,” said Megan Galando, co-owner and Executive Director.
Brain Balance offers a personalized, drug-free program that provides answers to social, emotional, behavioral and academic development. The Wexford center has shown their commitment to providing high-quality programming to their clients by completing the BCCC program, which requires that at least 80% of student-facing staff at each location complete training and professional certification through IBCCES that focuses on working with individuals with anxiety, dyslexia, autism and ADHD.
“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.”
For almost 20 years, IBCCES has been the industry leader in cognitive disorder training and certification for education, healthcare, and corporate professionals around the globe. IBCCES provides evidence-based training and certification programs created in conjunction with clinical experts and individuals with autism in order to provide professionals serving individuals with cognitive disorders a better understanding of what these disorders are, industry best practices, varied perspectives, and the latest research in these areas.
“The Board Certified Cognitive Center program enhances the Brain Balance team’s existing knowledge to ensure they can continue to impact the lives of their students,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
