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

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

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

Last week, IBT announced that it would expand its services to Pittsburgh and the surrounding community.

The clinic, which will be approximately 2,385 square feet, could serve up to 30 families.

“Since 2014 we have been talking about opening a brick and mortar structure in the area with the identification of a site as part of our five-year plan,” said IBT founder and executive director Dr. Linda Heitzman-Powel. “Not only is this a site where families can register their children for evidence-based treatment, it is a facility specifically designed to meet the needs of autistic children and their families for the age of first diagnosis until their transition to adulthood.

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