Brain Balance of Palmdale is Now a Board Certified Cognitive Center

Brain Balance Achievement Center of Palmdale, California, has earned a Board Certified Cognitive Center (BCCC) designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). The Palmdale center has shown its commitment to providing the best possible service to everyone who walks through their doors by requiring staff to complete a cognitive training and certification program through IBCCES that focuses on anxiety, dyslexia, autism and ADHD.

“We feel extremely excited to have obtained this certification for our center. As the need for services and support for our special needs community continues to rise, our eagerness to be fully equipped and educated has also increased," said Yomaira Gonzalez, owner and center director of Palmdale. “Knowing that most of my team not only have the education and experience but also the credentials under IBCCES makes a difference. It adds even more credibility to our program and the staff that represents it. Thanks to this certification, school personnel, in particular, have been more receptive to learning more about our program and the remarkable impact it is having on our community.”

Brain Balance was founded in 2007 and currently has more than 100 centers. Brain Balance employs a personalized and integrative approach through sensory engagement, physical development, academics and nutrition. Brain Balance offers a program that provides answers to social, emotional, behavioral and academic development.

“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.

“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.
