Helena Devereux was an educator with a pioneering vision –
that children with special needs could – and should - excel in school. Given a curriculum tailored to their unique
needs and talents, these boys and girls could flourish and grow.
This innovative spirit guides the educators of Devereux
today. They create positive learning
environments that will enable each child to build upon his or her personal
strengths to achieve broader achievement and, ultimately, live as healthy, respected individuals within their communities.

Stories of Hope
“My grandson has had severe problems and for several years was in and out of hospitals and residential programs. I prayed for his healing daily.
When his therapist told me that the only way I could help him was to send him to another residential program, I was reluctant.
Fortunately Devereux was the answer to my prayers! He has done so well that he has left the residential program but continues to go to the [Brandywine] day school. He is happy and self-confident thanks to Devereux and the great staff they employ.”
