Assessment and Consultation

Devereux Consultants (DevCon) positively impacts the lives of nearly 500 children, adolescents and adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences every year. As part of our continuum of care, DevCon provides assessment services to a host of individuals from early childhood through the lifespan.
