Behavior System

The behavior system operates on a Multidisciplinary Treatment Team approach with an emphasis upon a Positive Behavior Support philosophy of treatment. Success is based upon individual treatment objectives that promote growth towards pro-social skill acquisition and enhancement of an individual’s strengths with a reduction of challenging behaviors that hinder integration back into the family or community environment.


Devereux SIPP residents attend an on-site Kindergarten through 12th grade school. Curriculum is based upon instruction from the Department of Education to meet the educational needs of students throughout Florida. Our school also helps prepare students for graduation at their home school.
