Welcome to IBT

Integrated Behavioral Technologies, Inc.

Raising children in today’s world can be difficult, especially for parents of children with special needs. Families of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other developmental disability need information, services and support in order to help their child/ren succeed. Integrated Behavioral Technologies (IBT) can help you navigate the winding road of intervention for your child with special needs.

What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the scientific study of behavior and its application to socially important problems in the natural environment. ABA is not a specific program, but instead is a method of identifying skills to improve, problem behaviors to decrease, and ways to arrange the environment to support the changes.

IBT uses ABA techniques to improve communication, direction following, eye contact, daily living skills, motor skills, academic skills, and many more. We also use ABA to decrease problem behaviors such as noncompliance, tantrums, running away, self-injury, self-stimming, and aggression. In fact, the beauty of ABA is that you can use the principles to address any behavior in individuals of any age with or without special needs. IBT uses positive reinforcement to increase the likelihood of the child continuing to use that skill in the future.

We provide assessments (ABLLS, VB-MAPP, etc.), parent training, consultative services, assistance with IEPs, program development, progress monitoring, and in-home providers to meet the needs of children with autism and their families.

Our Philosophy

IBT’s goal is to provide needed services to children with special needs and their families. We partner with many state and federal programs to make services available to families. We provide in-home services to teach children in the natural environment and make services accessible to all families with children with autism.

We partner with many state and federal programs to make services available to families. We currently provide services under the following programs:

  • Kansas HCBS Autism Waiver
  • Kansas HCBS MR/DD Waiver
  • ECHO/Demonstration Project

We also work with families to bill their insurance and offer a sliding fee scale for our services to families who pay directly for our services. In addition, we are preparing to provide services under the new Kansas State Employee Health Plan coverage for children with autism.

We work to guarantee that we 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 25 hours of initial training. We also conduct reliability checks and provide feedback on a regular basis for providers working with our families.
