Devereux President and CEO Carl E. Clark’s message regarding racial inequality in our country
At Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, we denounce racism in all forms. Please read a message from President and CEO Carl E. Clark II in response to the deaths of George Floyd, and others in the Black Community, and resulting civil unrest across our country.
Welcome to the Devereux Center for Resilient Children (DCRC)!
Our mission is to promote social and emotional development, foster resilience, and build skills for school and life success in children birth through school-age, as well as to promote the resilience of the adults who care for them. We accomplish this by doing research and producing resources for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and adults. And our partnership with Aperture Education brings social and emotional learning and resilience to school-age children.

DECA Program Use during COVID-19
The Devereux Center for Resilient Children is committed to supporting early care and education providers in the successful implementation of resilience resources that promote the healthy social and emotional development of children. This newly released tool is specifically designed to help programs reflect on the nuances associated with implementing the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment (DECA) Program during a national health crisis that is interrupting early care and education services in a variety of ways. We understand that circumstances across this country are fluid and our responses may need to be updated to respond to changes. This series of information and responses to frequently asked questions is not exhaustive and will be continually monitored and modified as needed. You can also watch this recent one-hour webinar we delivered on this same topic: WATCH WEBINAR.
