Devereux New York Children's Services
Devereux New York's intervention programs are structured according to student's chronologic and developmental ages as well as specific treatment considerations. All individuals' programs are behaviorally-oriented, with collateral psychosocial supports to promote goal-attainment and independence.
A multidisciplinary treatment team approach insures the development of realistic goals and objectives in all areas of functioning. All individuals are comprehensively assessed in their initial thirty days of acceptance into the program, and the collected information/data is used to develop an Individualized Service Plan (ISP). Progress reports are issued at the quarterly, semi-annual, and annual points, with specific intensive interventions being monitored even more frequently. An individual's Case Manager coordinates the development, implementation and monitoring of treatment plans/outcome on an ongoing basis throughout the length of the placement.
The therapeutic milieu at Devereux New York embraces a positive approaches philosophy utilizing behavioral interventions at the micro and macro levels. Each individual's treatment is developed in accord with their ISP and may include any combination of the following clinical services:
- Psychiatric, Psychological, and Educational Services
(including pre-vocational and vocational opportunities)
- Individual and Group Psychotherapies
(including skills-building groups as well as more process-oriented groups for specific subpopulations, such as survivors of sexual abuse)
- Behavioral Management
- Family Support
- Life Skills Development
- Community-based Experiences and Interventions
- Recreational Therapy
- Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapies
- Medical, Dental and Nutritional Services
