Devereux New York - About Us
Devereux New York provides a wide range of clinical and educational services for 100 residentially-placed children and adolescents who are dually diagnosed with developmental disabilities/mental retardation and psychiatric/behavioral disorders. The developmental disabilities include various disorders, although there are significant subpopulations of individuals with autism and Prader-Willi Syndrome. The psychiatric disorders include ADHD, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, PTSD, and various affective and psychotic illnesses. The population ranges from eight to twenty-one years of age. In addition to the on-campus program, the New York Center provides day services to five community-based youngsters with similar demographic characteristics. The New York Center also operates five nearby IRA facilities, accommodating eighteen developmentally-disabled adults. The Center provides full day, intensive educational and behavioral interventions to children with autism at its Westchester County site.
