YouthCare focuses on helping children with social-cognitive deficits including Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Nonverbal Learning Disorder and related challenges to develop social skills. We offer therapeutic support through group participation in recreational, social and educational activities. Our services focus on children's educational and behavioral needs as well as the importance of self-disclosure and self-efficacy. YouthCare believes that children are best able to learn social skills within naturalistic group settings. We also value the need to collaborate with community service providers such as teachers, professionals and parents. YouthCare is a program of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Partners HealthCare.
