provider that can not only educate children, but also helps young adults and their parents prepare for a life that is as independent and productive as possible will be paramount in achieving success."

Devereux's History with Autism

Dr. Leo Kanner, who first identified Autistic Disturbances of Affective Disorder in children and a former national Devereux trustee, contacted Devereux founder, Miss Helena Devereux, looking for a place to educate children diagnosed with autism early in the history of the disorder. That began Devereux's long history with helping individuals with autism and their families. Today, Devereux serves more than 600 children, adolescents and adults with a primary and secondary diagnosis of autism at centers located throughout the United States, offering specialized educational programs, vocational training, social skills development, group homes and supported living services that encompass a continuum of care.

National experts, including Bob Kreider and Dr. Lorrie Henderson are available for interviews on autism, these ten practical tips to help parents, the disorder's impact on families and early intervention and education. For more information, please call Abbey Luterick at 610.542.3030 or 610.291.5902.

Devereux is the nation's largest nonprofit provider serving children, adolescents, and adults with behavioral, mental health and intellectual/ developmental disabilities. Founded in 1912 by a Philadelphia schoolteacher, Helena Trafford Devereux, the Devereux Philosophy of Care focuses on bringing out the strengths of each individual through research-based assessment and treatment programs. Devereux employs nearly 6000 staff and operates 15 centers in 11 states, providing services to over 15,000, annually.
