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.

Our New Jersey licensed clinical psychology team has expertise providing comprehensive psychological evaluations for the diagnosis and treatment planning of children, adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, attentional disorders, learning disabilities, genetic disorders, behavioral disturbances and psychiatric disorders.

We pride ourselves in helping to determine the strengths and needs of each individual we serve. We create individualized assessments for those with behavioral challenges, psychiatric disturbances, learning differences, limited verbal skills and profound cognitive impairment. Our assessments are designed to answer specific questions and offer recommendations for strengthening an individual’s unique academic, behavioral, social and emotional functioning.

Such settings include: state assisted aide, school-based settings, specifically, for section 504 Plan accommodations, Individualized Education Program (IEP) recommendations, Response to Intervention (RTI) supportive services, and best practice teaching and training strategies.
