As Devereux turns 100, it is a new day, in part because of the work of Miss Devereux. America offers a culture of greater openness, communication, and sharing for those with disabilities. At this anniversary milestone, Devereux has an opportunity to gain even broader acceptance for the disability issues that affect so many American families, to tell the story of how early intervention and positive support can help, and to educate the public about how every individual can benefit from building social and emotional health and resilience.
