Cutting Edge Therapy Services has earned the Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) designation, which the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) awards to organizations who complete an autism-specific training and certification program through IBCCES.
“Our team is extremely passionate about providing high quality services to our patients,” said Krista Bailey, MS, CCC-SLP and owner of Cutting Edge Therapy Services. “We have noticed that our area has a huge need for autism treatment, advocacy, and awareness. We are excited to become the first Certified Autism Center in our area. We aim to continue providing high quality services with the most up-to-date and evidence-based practices.”
Cutting Edge Therapy Services offers pediatric speech, language, feeding, and occupational therapies. The clinic also works closely with Lane McIntosh MS, LBA, BCBA of Kentucky Lake ABA for autistic patients that receive behavioral therapy.
“We’re thrilled to provide more certified options for individuals looking for providers who have taken extra steps to complete autism-specific training and certification in addition to their existing credentials,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
For more than 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, and the latest research in these areas.
IBCCES also created CertifiedAutismCenter.com, as a free online resource for parents that lists certified locations and professionals. Each organization listed on the site has met Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) requirements.
