Who We Help
Devereux Pennsylvania’s extensive array of services enables us to provide many service options ranging from intensive residential treatment programs and inpatient and outpatient services, to community-based services, group homes, individualized family services, day schools, employment programs, and therapeutic foster care.
Devereux programs embrace four significant essentials of treatment: family engagement, functional behavior assessment, trauma-informed care and positive behavior support.
Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports and Trauma Informed Care
Devereux embraces a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports/Trauma Informed Care (PBIS-TIC) approach. PBIS-TIC is research supported, emphasizing prevention and intervention based on a careful assessment and understanding of behavior. Teaching alternative or replacement behaviors is a critical feature of PBIS-TIC as is the use of data for effective treatment decisions. PBIS-TIC promotes an effective environment that facilitates positive interactions among staff and the individuals we serve.
Family engagement is one of the most important building blocks in successful treatment and outcomes.
“Devereux really seemed to be the best place for my daughter
Annie. It was the best in terms of what
the curriculum was including the positive behavior supports that they use and
the reinforcements. The environment and the staff is what I was most impressed
with. The staff got to know our
names—they are very caring. The changes
in our life have just been so wonderful, optimistic and hopeful.”
