Brain Balance of Cary Has Received Board Certified Cognitive Center Designation

​Brain Balance Achievement Center of Cary, NC, has earned a Board Certified Cognitive Center (BCCC) designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).

Brain Balance offers a personalized program that provides answers to social, emotional, behavioral and academic development. The Cary 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.

“We are proud to have 100% of our eligible staff certified, including two members having achieved Board Certified Cognitive Specialist (BCCS) certification. The Cary center has changed the lives of nearly 1,000 children - including our son - and their families, since 2010. With the training they’ve received through IBCCES, our team is now even better equipped to positively impact the outcomes for our kids,” said Nate Taninecz, Executive Director of the Cary center.

Located in the Tryon Village Shopping Center for the past 10 years, the Cary center has been a beacon of hope for families with children who struggle and an active business supporting the community it serves. In addition to working with children 4-17 years old, with a ratio of, at most, 1:2 coach to students, they now offer a College Reboot Program designed for 18-24 year-olds that prepares them for the challenges that contribute to only a 60% graduation rate nationally according to the National Center for Education Statistics.  

The certification announcement is the latest in a corporate-wide initiative for Brain Balance centers across the U.S.

“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 healthcare, education and corporate professionals around the globe. More parents are seeking out organizations that have completed evidence-based training and professional review as they search for options.

 “Since Brain Balance Centers work with children with a variety of needs and cognitive disorders, the Board Certified Cognitive Center program is a perfect fit. The program enhances the team’s existing knowledge to ensure they can continue to have a positive impact on the thousands of families they serve,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
