Integrated Behavioral Technologies, Inc. (IBT) is a non-profit organization that aims to provide equal access to evidence-based services and education to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other behavioral and developmental disabilities with a special focus on children in low-income and rural areas. Access to services in rural areas can be extremely limited, with treatment centers being up to 5 hours away. Without IBT’s willingness to travel, many families would not be able to access evidence-based intervention for their children.
While we work hard to raise money for children across the state of Kansas, In 2015, we launched our latest fundraising campaign, “Step Up South East Kansas”, targeted towards increasing services the SEK area. There is a growing need for increased resources and treatment services for children living in this rural and expansive area. The focus of this campaign is to raise enough funds to open The Lighthouse of Southeast Kansas, an IBT center located in SEK that will deliver a variety of evidence based services to an underserved area of Kansas. The Lighthouse of Southeast Kansas will provide a variety of services, including applied behavior analysis (ABA; a treatment that can range from 25-40 hours of direct intervention per week), consultative and clinic services, parent support and training, provider training and recruitment and coordination of services for children with autism and other behavioral and developmental disabilities.
We want to provide as much evidence based practice as possible- and that means we need your help!
