Aspen Network offers integrated, year-round programs for teens and young adults with social concerns, anxiety disorders and social differences, including spectrum behaviors.
These one-of-a-kind programs, both residential and nonresidential, allow young people to learn and grow in a welcoming environment with peers of their own and a sensitively trained staff that includes neurotypical young adults. Here, a person can feel accepted and understood and, with professional support, launch into a fuller, more satisfying life.
