Twyla Rist & Associates is proud to be involved with several local and national charities. Giving back is central to our mission and one of the most important parts of what makes us who we are as people in this community.
The Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center (Britain IDC) is an important outreach program of Shawnee Mission Health, touching the lives of more than 4,000 children with special needs since 1972. Dedicated to serving children with special needs from birth to six years of age, IDC provides a unique program that involves family and friends in the process of therapeutic treatment and education.
Individualized programs are shaped for each child and family by a team of physical, occupational, and music therapists, speech language pathologists, early childhood special education teachers, behavior analysts, social workers, and paraprofessionals.
The annual Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy event benefits children and families served by the Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. Each year, the event raises over $500,000!
The Britain Center serves approximately 180 children who are challenged by a range of developmental disabilities including Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autism, and many others. SMMC’s Level III NICU offers clinically advanced care to nearly 500 sick and premature babies each year, as young as 28-weeks gestation.
