Autism Spectrum Disorders
Since its groundbreaking efforts with autism in the 1940s, Devereux Pennsylvania has been a leader in the evolving field of autism services for children and adults. Today, we offer a rich variety of programs to meet the unique needs of each individual and advocate for the continued enrichment of services within the Commonwealth and beyond.
Devereux Pennsylvania’s philosophy for its autism services is the partnership of evidence-based, clinical program models and - just as important - a warm, encouraging and supportive approach.
Tomorrow, Devereux Pennsylvania looks to pioneer new innovations in early intervention, education, parent and staff development, and transitional services that will bring enhanced personal fulfillment, independence and community involvement for individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum.
Devereux Pennsylvania clinicians and educators provide an array of residential and community-based services for children and adolescents diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These include: Approved Private Schools, assessment, school and family consultation, Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (also called “wrap around” services), supported employment, transition services, and residential services. Devereux supports children and adolescents with ASD by helping them develop essential life, communication and social skills, enhancing their quality of life.
Devereux Pennsylvania provides campus and group home living, supported living, respite care, and life and employment skills training within the community.
CAAPP (Community Adult Autism Partnership Program) has really positively affected
my life in so many ways. They've helped
me to stay calm during times of distress and focus on what needs to be
done. I've also been able to gain a lot
more independence in multiple areas including (but not limited to) transportation,
working, budgeting, cooking and other life skills. My favorite way that they have positively
impacted my life, though, is by taking some of the work load off of my parents.”
