“The road is often long and bumpy for parents whose children learn differently, exhibit challenging behavior or are not neurotypical,” says Diane Sands, Center Owner and Executive Director. “So many families come to us desperate to find answers and help for their child after years of ostracism, criticism and judgement. At Brain Balance of Encino, we understand that journey, we have felt that pain and have seen joy and light as the road turns towards positive change – life after Brain Balance. Every family has a story and we are here to listen, support and encourage the students, and the families that love them, every step of the way.”

Brain Balance of Encino collaborates with local therapeutic centers and schools to ensure that their shared students/patients are reaping the benefits of all the community has to offer. The Center regularly participates in events geared towards children with special needs as well as the annual Encino Chamber of Commerce Family Festival. Brain Balance of Encino is proud to display the Teal Pumpkin during Halloween to support those with food allergies and the post-Halloween candy collection supports Operation Gratitude. The Center will begin to hold monthly educational panels starting January 2020, free and open to the public, on a variety of developmental, behavioral and academic topics; and always welcomes the opportunity to speak to parent or educator groups at schools. Over the past year, they have been humbled to support students affected by the Woolsey Fire and collected and shipped books to the Paradise Fire survivors in Butte County. Overall, Brain Balance of Encino believes that “it takes a village” and is proud to do its part.

“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.”

“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. Our program complements the team’s existing knowledge, allowing them to continue to have a positive impact on the thousands of families they serve,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.

For almost 20 years, IBCCES has been the industry leader in autism training for licensed healthcare professionals and educators around the globe. More parents are seeking out organizations that have completed evidence-based training and professional review as they search for options.
