International Behaviour Therapist® (IBT) Training

The Tree House International is the only Approved  Provider for IBT in Sri Lanka 

WHAT IS AN IBT

Around the world, IBTs provide behavioural services to a variety of clients in a variety of settings. Most IBTs work with individuals on the Autism Spectrum or with those who have developmental delays and require additional support with language development, challenging behaviour, activities of daily living, social skills, and learning. IBTs are typically hands-on, “front-line” therapists who deliver behavioural services directly to clients.

IBTs work under the supervision of a Behavior Analyst (BCBA / IBA). The IBT®️ provides direct implementation of the behavioural interventions designed by the IBA or BCBA.

IBAO®️ BOARD APPROVED COURSEWORK

The IBT®️ is an accomplishment that shows the world that the individual is a competent behavioural therapist and ready to provide effective and ethical treatment in homes, schools, and community settings.

The International Behaviour Therapist (IBT®️) certification is obtained after a candidate demonstrates that they have completed a minimum of 40 hours of training, 300 hours of supervised practice, and supervision-related tasks and activities
