Narrative

YouthCare offers therapeutically-based programs to help children ages 5-18 with Asperger's and related challenges to develop social skills. At YouthCare we want your child or teen to feel good about him or herself, make social connections, develop independence skills and learn to navigate the social world just as much as you do. Our talented and dedicated staff provide therapeutic support and apply sound interventions to all program activities within a fun and small-group setting.

Programs include therapeutic summer day camp, teen life skills and career development programs, social skill groups and school-based consultations.  Youthcare offers Transitions: Programs for Teens and Young Adults which offers programs for ages 13-22. Our children are typically diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, Asperger’s syndrome, and non-verbal learning disabilities. Locations in Charlestown, Wellesley, and Westwood, MASSACHUSETTS.

Please be aware that Aspire offers multidisciplinary interventions that do not fit standard medical procedure codes; therefore, our services are not reimbursable by medical insurers.
