Who We Serve

Who We Serve

We serve children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), many of whom are dually diagnosed with mental and/or emotional disorders. Typical diagnoses include:

  • Autism
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)
  • Prader-Willi
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
    Disorder (ADHD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • PICA

We provide services for those exhibiting complex and extreme behavioral disorders, which include aggression, self-injurious behavior, sexually inappropriate behavior, fire setting, property destruction and other problems that significantly interfere with daily living and learning. We assist individuals in overcoming those challenges through evidenced-based, individualized, comprehensive treatment programs, which include:

  • Expertly-designed behavioral, medical, and transitional programming
  • Special education
  • Functional skill acquisition
  • Community participation
  • Habilitation and vocational training
  • Supported employment
  • Family involvement
  • Counseling

Unlike many other programs, our individuals need not choose between a program that specializes in behavioral services or one that can provide necessary medical services. Bellwether Behavioral Health’s Behavior Medical programs in Florida and New Jersey provide both comprehensive behavioral treatment as well as medical treatment services for numerous conditions associated with IDD, dual diagnoses and behavioral challenges including:

  • Insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Seizure disorders
  • Tuberous sclerosis
  • Feeding/swallowing difficulties
  • Cardiac complications
  • Respiratory disorders
