PITTSBURG, Kan. – Integrated Behavioral Technologies announced its plan to open a brand new clinic for children with autism in Pittsburg in conjunction with Sonshine Child Care.

The organization says a groundbreaking ceremony will take place on either December 9th or 12th.

Since 2010, Integrated Behavioral Technologies (IBT) has had a strong presence in the Pittsburg and Southeast Kansas community for children and families impacted by autism

Last week, IBT announced they will be expanding their services in Pittsburg and the surrounding community.

The clinic, which will be approximately 2385 square feet could serve up to 30 families.

“Since 2014, we have talked about opening a brick-and-mortar structure in the area with the identification of a site as a part of our 5-year plan,” said IBT Founder and Executive Director Dr. Linda Heitzman-Powel. “Not only is this a site where families can enroll their children for evidence-based treatment, this is a facility that is specifically designed to address the needs of children with autism and their families from age of first diagnosis until they transition into adulthood.”

IBT has served or currently serves families in Pittsburg, Parsons, Ft. Scott, Chanute, Carl Junction MO, and Frontenac.
