Pennsylvania Adult Services

Devereux PA Adult Services (PA AS) provides programs and supports for adult individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) ranging from the borderline to the profound range of cognitive functioning. We also serve individuals with autism spectrum disorder, mental health disorders (MHD), co-occurring disorders (I/DD, MHD), and brain injuries. Individuals receiving services reside on our campus or in community homes throughout several counties and range in age from 21 years through end of life. Though the majority of the population is diagnosed with an intellectual disability, interns have the opportunity to work with a variety of clinical conditions. Interns are encouraged to tailor their internship experience to suit their clinical interests and collaborate with their supervisors to develop a challenging and rewarding intern year.

Center for Effective Schools

The Devereux Center for Effective Schools (CES) serves students with, and at risk for developing, antisocial patterns of behavior within public schools (located primarily in urban communities) as well as within other child serving institutions, including private day schools, residential treatment centers and hospital programs.

Children’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services (CIDDS): Autism Track

CIDDS provides assessment, intervention, and consultation services to approximately 250 children and adolescents in 10 campus-based and 7 community-based residential treatment facilities, treatment foster care homes, and approved private school educational placements. The youth are referred for services due to intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and concomitant psychiatric and behavioral challenges. With a growing need for specialized services for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders, CIDDS opened two new programs in 2014, STAIRS (short-term autism intensive residential services) and the Devereux Autism Assessment Center.

Children’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services (CIDDS): Intellectual Disability Track

The primary age range for clients served is 6 to 21; however, CIDDS may accept children younger than age 6 to a treatment foster care home or continue to serve individuals over the age of 21 until an appropriate adult placement can be obtained for that individual.

Clinical diagnoses vary widely, but generally are encompassed in one of the following categories: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Mood Disorders, Disruptive Behavior Disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Community Services

Devereux PA Community Services provides programs and supports to children and adult individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders and mental health disorders.
