Happy Birthday Devereux!!!

Devereux, a leading behavioral health care organization serving individuals with developmental disabilities, is celebrating their centennial this year.

Devereux was founded in 1912 by Helena T. Devereux. At the time, she was a young Philadelphia school teacher. From a small classroom, the organization she founded has grown into one of the largest providers in the nation.

Autism News and Views congratulates Devereux for their enduring vision. Thank you Devereux for what you do each and every day---serving and supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. For more information on Devereux, visit http://www.devereux.org/
