At KenCrest, the Clinical Department supports intellectually disabled, autistic adults, and students K-12 by conducting assessments to create a comprehensive treatment plan for behavior, sexuality, communication, and additional therapies. We offer services in the community at jobs, programs, schools, volunteer settings, or during community participation supports (CPS). We also provide home services in any KenCrest residential environment, homes owned or operated by external, residential agencies, and family or individually-owned homes.
Clinical Services are available within Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania.
