Victoria Children's Residental Program
It is our belief that when children are regularly engaged in positive experiences, they are less likely to engage in challenging behaviors. The Children’s Program is designed to increase pro-social behaviors and decrease challenging behaviors. Through positive role modeling, opportunities are provided for the children to successfully develop appropriate social skills. Children gaining these skills will live productive lives and have a healthy and positive self-identity. All Devereux staff, including direct care professionals, therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, teachers and administrators, actively promote confidence in our children. Each member of the staff at Devereux-Victoria is considered to be an agent for pro-social change.
The Children’s Program at Devereux-Victoria is a 24-hour residential treatment program that provides treatment to emotionally and cognitively affected children ages 5-14. The program’s goals are to provide structure and therapeutic intervention with the aim of returning children to their homes or to lower levels of care. All children receive attention, direction, assistance and supervision from highly trained direct-care professionals. The educational program is based on positive rewards for achievement of desired behaviors and academic progress. We believe every student has the ability to reach his or her maximum potential. Students are provided with challenging experiences that build upon individual strengths and are encouraged to achieve the highest and most appropriate personal goals.
