Venture Rehab Group receives the Certified Autism Center™ designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) which requires therapists and staff to complete professional training and certification programs specific to serving autistic individuals or those with sensory needs.
The IBCCES Certified Autism Center™ designation has been a goal of the leadership team at Venture Rehab Group for many years. It is with great pride and fanfare that we can say we accomplished this goal,” shared Cynthia R. Flynt, president of Venture Rehab group. “Our objective was to expand our knowledge and understanding of the wide and beautiful autism spectrum and how it impacts the child and their family. With this knowledge the Venture Team will have the tools necessary to apply our therapeutic skills in the most effective way possible while working with our autistic clients.”
Venture serves children of all ages who have delays or disorders in a variety of areas that affect their communication, speech, feeding, swallowing, orofacial myofunctional therapy, fluency, pragmatics, socialization, fine motor skills, and sensory integration. Venture’s outpatient clinic is equipped with a state of the art sensory gym, play therapy room and low sensory treatment rooms. Their pediatric therapists work in the homes, schools, preschools, Head Start, and childcare programs throughout the communities in eastern North Carolina.
Tracy Harrington, Chief of Operations at Venture Rehab Group went on to share, “Children with autism have always been an important part of our practice. Working with these clients and their families is a great passion for Venture and our staff. Completing the training and education to become a Certified Autism Center™ through the IBCCES is one of our greatest accomplishments and the knowledge learned through this process has enhanced all of the services provided by our team.”
