Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Devereux provides programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across all stages of life, in many different community-based and residential settings. Typically, the referring agency and school representatives (where indicated) work with families to determine the most appropriate level of care for an individual.
We are proud to serve children and adults across the country. Individuals and families who are not located near our service areas are encouraged to contact us for help and information.
Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services
For individuals in need of 24-hour, out-of-home services, our residential treatment programs provide the resources needed to meet an individual's treatment, social and educational goals.
Numerous community-based services and supports provide more independent living options for individuals to reside within their communities, whether in group homes, lifesharing or supported apartments.
These specialized services are designed to meet each individual's treatment needs in the least restrictive environment possible. In addition to outpatient counseling, services may include wrap around, respite, clinical and educational assessments, family counseling, medication management, and parent and sibling consultations.
Devereux day schools offer high quality, innovative special education programs within a structured environment that prepare students for returning to local educational communities. Students receive individualized interventions based on their unique needs. Support services and a therapeutic environment enhance the educational, behavioral, emotional, and social development of children and adolescents. Our interventions emphasize Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
Every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment to give each individual the opportunity for success. Devereux’s Therapeutic Foster Care program provides services to a diverse population of at-risk children and their families. We use a multi-disciplinary team approach that embraces each child's unique potential and emphasizes innovative program development and clinical excellence. Foster care services range from intensive clinical intervention, traditional foster care, respite services and case management for children in the foster care system.
Devereux offers a host of employment services and supports to transition-age youth and adults including prevocational training, community-supported employment and pre-employment day programs. All programs are designed to foster community inclusion and develop living and communication skills.
