IBT strives to meet the needs of children, their families, and the communities they serve. For that reason, IBT works with families, individuals, and communities to develop services that meet their needs. The list below includes services that IBT commonly provides. However, if what you need is not on the list, please get in touch with us, and we will work with you to develop the service and plan that fits your individual, family, or community needs.
We partner with many state and federal programs to make services available to families. In addition, we provide in-home services to teach children in the natural environment and make services accessible to all families with children with autism.
We currently provide services under the following programs:
We also work with families to bill their insurance and offer a sliding fee scale to families who pay directly for our services.
We work to provide the best possible services, so we take pride in our providers. Providers maintain CPR and First Aid certifications and pass state and federal background checks. Providers receive 40 hours of initial training in addition to ongoing supervision and training. We also conduct reliability checks and provide feedback regularly for providers working with our families.
We offer parent training to families of children with autism and other behavioral issues in our Basehor office, client home, and over telemedicine using a behavioral framework. Sessions are generally provided weekly or bi-weekly and target basic behavioral management, effective teaching strategies, and individually identified goals. We work with insurance companies to cover this service when possible and offer a sliding fee schedule for families who pay directly.
We work with treatment teams, families, and schools to provide Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA), individualized behavior plans, and training for individuals and groups. Services may include those targeted towards a specific child, classroom, or community. In addition, IBT also offers targeted or ongoing training to schools, groups, or individuals. Please contact us for more information and discuss your individual or organizational needs regarding these services.

IBT has served families in Southeast Kansas since 2011 providing Home and Community-based Services (HCBS) for families receiving the early autism waiver from the State of Kansas. There was a tremendous need and families were desperate for services. In 2014, we quickly expanded from Pittsburg to Parson, Chanute, Ft. Scott, and small areas in-between. We always maintained a goal of working to establish a true bricks-and-mortar facility that would be able to serve children and provide resources for families. After several false starts, we were able to partner with the Victory Life Church and Sonshine Childcare to build a new building as a first step in our goal to become a local Autism Center to continue to build capacity. We are now able to open the door to serve more families at our clinic. We have a strong working relationship with Pittsburg State University and are in the process of partnering with SEK Interlocal to provide school-based support, all the while maintaining our HCBS services to families in other communities. We have grown from providing services to two children in Southeast Kansas to providing services to nearly 20 between our clinic and HCBS services, and we continue to work to increase access for even more families.
The K.I.D.S. Place is an early learning and childcare center in McLouth, Kansas. They provide a nurturing environment that supports children’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive needs. The K.I.D.S. Place offers care to children ages 1 year up to 14 years.
The Infant Program, Toddler Program, Pre-K Program, and School Age and Summer Program are curriculums designed to enhance and develop children to the best of their abilities at all stages.
The KIDS Place is a unique environment that provides early learning for children and houses an autism clinic for its umbrella company, IBT, where children have access to ABA intervention but can also integrate into the childcare classrooms to be with like-aged children peers.
IBT-C provides autism and behavioral intervention services in a one-on-one setting with opportunities for social skills practice and inclusion with typically developing peers. Many staff at The KIDS Place are dual trained as teachers in the classrooms and as intensive individual support (IIS) providers who work with children on the autism spectrum.
In addition to teaching qualifications, dual staff also receive 40 hours of initial training in working with children with autism, plus ongoing supervision, reliability checks, and feedback regularly. In addition, each child who receives autism services has an individual treatment team that includes an autism specialist or a BCBA and IIS providers.
The autism specialist or BCBA works closely with families, completes criterion-referenced assessments, and creates an individualized treatment plan to work with the child on a wide variety of behavioral, socialization, and communication skills. The IIS providers work with the child on skills written in the treatment plan in both the clinic and classroom settings and then graphs the child’s progress. In addition, the treatment team meets with the family regularly to communicate and collaborate on ideas for the child’s success.
In summer of 2023, Integrated Behavioral Technologies, Inc and Autism Hope for Families, Inc (AHFF) merged to impact individuals and families diagnosed with Autism. Autism Hope for Families, Inc. is also a non-profit organization and support group in Southeast Kansas. It was founded by Nikki and Phillip Jacobs in 2012, after their daughter was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at 21 months old. Autism Hope for Families, Inc. helps families in Kansas with a support group, finding services, financial support, fundraising, and raising public awareness for people with ASD which are all reasons of why IBT was excited to co-brand partnerships in 2023 and help to continue the success.
Autism Hope for Families, Inc and Integrated Behavioral Technologies, Inc’s hope is to collaboratively work with families to raise funds in Kansas. As a unit, AHFF and IBT distribute these funds towards grants to start Autism/Behavioral Centers, award communication devices to children and adults with ASD, educate people about autism and treatments, grant scholarships to individuals with ASD, provide continuing education opportunities in such areas as first responders and family safety training, and to give families the opportunity to have a larger support system. Many families do not get the help they need for their children due to lack of funding and services. AHFF and IBT want to help these families that desperately need help. People with ASD can get better!
