Organizations across the globe claim to be “Autism friendly” but are not equipped to truly accommodate these guests. This has left families disappointed due to lack of trained and aware staff.
Even in the highly educated field of healthcare many individual practitioners have little to no training specific to autism, often leading to individuals on the autism spectrum not having their specific challenges properly understood or addressed and adversely affecting both their healthcare experiences and the effectiveness of treatments they receive.
The IBCCES Certified Autism Center (CAC) certification recognizes organizations that have a highly trained staff and are fully equipped to serve the fastest growing population of developmental disorders.
All Certified Autism Centers meet the following requirements:
An onsite review by IBCCES experts includes a comprehensive report with suggested changes or modifications to better serve individuals on the spectrum, as well as sensory guides for activities.
$262 billion is spent on autism related services in the US each year.
1 in 59 children has been identified with autism.
ASD occurs in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
ASD is at a 600% increase year after year.
