Millwood Learning Center is now Devereux CARES
Devereux CARES provides an extended year, full day, intensive educational and behavioral intervention based on Applied Behavior Analysis to children with autism and other pervasive developmental disorders. The students served by the school present with a range of severity levels and each receives individualized intervention based on his or her needs. A behavioral assessment of developmental functioning, profiles of strengths and weaknesses, and levels of adaptive skills inform and guide these programs. Instructional staff participates in intensive and ongoing training and is held directly accountable for the child's learning. This is accomplished through ongoing data collection and intensive professional supervision. Children's progress is evaluated daily through the systematic collection of performance data.
