If I’m on deferred adjudication probation, what would be the consequences if I decided to not

report with only 1 month left?

You only have one month left... stick it out.  If you violate at the last minute, the judge can adjudicate you and throw you in county jail.  The judge also has the option of adjudicating you and placing you on a strait probation and torturing with a longer probation than the nine months that you have already put up with.
