Great Abilities

Great Abilities is an intensive, in-home program designed to improve the well-being and quality of life of youth and their families. Through collaboration and integration across complimentary models of evidence-based intervention, the program specializes in supporting the well being of youth, including youth with mental health and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities, including those with behavior problems, social skills deficits, and adaptive daily living or self-care needs. The overall goal is to support and strengthen the environment for youth and their families, so they can obtain the skills necessary to thrive in the home and in the community.

The program is open to youth age 18 and younger, residing in either Camden or Gloucester Counties, with an average length of treatment between 60-90 days. Our team of Licensed, Master Level, BCBA, BCaBA, Certified Behavioral Assistants, and Technicians are here to help each youth build better relationships, learn enhanced communication and social skills, and develop adaptive behavior while remaining at home with their families who, in turn, will acquire increased knowledge, parenting skills, and tools for more comprehensive support for their children.
