Ramon’s Village Resort in Belize is now designated a Certified Autism Center™
“Ramon’s Village Resort located in San Pedro Town, Belize is now a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC), designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). Completion of the certification means that guests with autism and other sensory needs can have the best possible stay or scuba diving experience. To achieve the CAC accreditation, Ramon’s Village Resort staff completed evidence-based staff training and certification required by IBCCES to recognize the needs of guests on the spectrum and provide options for visitors with sensory needs.
“For years, Ramon’s Village Resort has had guests both new and returning who travel to the resort with children of special needs. When we learned many children with autism are calmed by water and that IBCCES and PADI had developed a program to help dive instructors work with these individuals, we felt compelled to be a part of such an inspiring program,” said Steve Sherwin, Vice President of Operations at Ramon’s Village.
Ramon’s Village’s main focus is on scuba diving and other water-related activities. The resort also now offers free scuba instruction for any child on the spectrum or other special need wishing to learn to how to scuba dive.’
