Devon Hall at Pennhurst State School — East Vincent, Pennsylvania
Patients at Pennhurst were grouped into several broad categories, none of which served as an effective label for the purpose of treatment. Under these classifications patients were listed as either an imbecile or insane for their mental ability and classified physically as either epileptic or healthy. With these labels, patients were segregated into higher and lower functioning wards; a classification system that would be used in future as a means of punishment for those who acted out.
