Deshanee has shown so much improvement since going to Devereux.  Her progress has not only been within the compounds of the program, but has also carried over to her behavior at home during her visits.  Devereux has been such a great help to not only Deshanee, but to the entire family, we are so grateful for all that Devereux has done.
