A Therapeutic School for Troubled Youth

Most people agree that teenagers of this generation deal with more daily
activities, entertainment, and worries compared to those in the past. With
technological advancements at their behest, they enjoy many things their parents
didn't. However, this wide range of choices and overwhelming stimuli also has an
effect on them; their emotional and psychological aspects of growth are often
compromised. Fortunately, research and developments on educational, medical,
and clinical institutions help troubled teens find a shelter in boarding schools
designed especially for them.

Boarding schools for struggling teens accept students with various forms and
manifestations of developmental, educational, and psychological issues. They
help those with autism spectrum disorders, adoption issues, anxiety, as well as
oppositional, bipolar, residential treatment center and borderline personality
disorders. Such boarding schools also deal with students with post-traumatic
stress disorder, substance abuse issues, and depression, impulse control, and
anger management problems. Those struggling with their academic, family, and
communication aspects can also enroll in these schools.

Therapeutic schools for troubled teens have a variety of clinical services to handle
different teen issues. They refer to modern treatment modalities to help each
student have a higher functioning level, diminish symptoms and manifestations,
and help them become productive family and community members. These
modalities include behavior, group, autism school and family therapy, each with
its own features and advantages that suit a student's needs.

A multi-disciplinary team includes therapists, teachers, and psychiatrists who

coordinate structured treatment programs for a student's specific needs and
preferences. These experts assess a teen's capabilities and current levels of
achievement using standardized tests used by licensed professionals in the
industry. Aside from individual treatments, a school for troubled youth also
employs group therapies that allow students to interact with fellow teens.

Schools for troubled teens also develop and provide programs for teens with
clinical cases such as Asperger Syndrome. Their team of knowledgeable experts
refers to the Diagnostics and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV-TR)
for the symptoms, Aspergers boarding school and criteria to determine if your
child has the condition. A leading Aspergers school can effectively deal with your
teen's needs while also allowing them to function normally at school.
Discipline And The Child On The Autism Spectrum

Discipline is just a way to teach children to act in a social acceptable way and to
instill the ethics and morals that parents want their child to have. Without the
discipline and the teaching of discipline, a child from birth would develop as his
environment allowed. The "spoiled brat" is often thought to be a child whose
parents did not love him/her enough to use discipline. Discipline is love, and it
allows children to learn how to become productive and appropriate adults in the

Children with developmental, processing, or learning disabilities must learn

through the process of discipline and life lessons on how to behave in society just
as any other child would. Many use the terms ABA or Behavior Modification, but
to me they are just discipline, autism boarding school and being a parent.
Discipline is the job parents like the least that is necessary for our children. If your
child/teen at ten has the mature or mental age of a five year old, then discipline
should be age appropriate as activities that the child can and will tolerate.
Discipline must be appropriate. When a two year old is about to touch a burning
fire, a quick slap of the hand to stop him may be appropriate or a slight slap on
the behind. At this moment for the toddler stops the behavior that would bring
them harm. For that is what discipline is about safety and teaching behavior to
allow a child to grow up into a safe along with productive adult. Spanking as a
form of punishment is not acceptable behavior and other forms of behavior
modification should be used that are age appropriate. If your seven year old
destroys a toy, then the punishment is to not replace the toy. The seven year old
will then learn the life lesson: if he does not take care of his toy, he will not have a
toy. If a teenager has a party while parents are away,and the home is wrecked,
they will be responsible for replacing those things. A spanking can not teach the
lessons and can never be appropriate. Punishment needs to teach a life lesson, so
the child understands the consequences of their action. A slap on the hand to the
toddler is only a way to keep the child safe for that moment and gives the child no
lesson on why they should stay away from the fire. A parent can not let the
toddler get burned and find out why-they need to keep the toddler safe so the
slap on the hand or behind serves the purpose.

Children with disabilities need to learn life lessons with discipline. A parent needs
to keep the child safe and to teach them how to act in society. Much time with
Aspergers I hear: well he is just blunt, autism program for teens and that is the
way he handles his world. This may be fine behavior for his world; when out in
public it is not the child's with Aspergers' world, it is everyone world. I am
overweight, and I know that I am. Anyone who looks at me can see that I need to
lose weight. Still I would be very offended if a child with Aspergers because he is
blunt, and I did not know him nor his parents, came up to me and said "your fat
why." It is a logical question, but not a question that an adult woman would not
want a stranger asking. I would consider this rude. I would consider this person to
be a bully, and his behavior would hurt me. Many would consider me to not be
"autism aware or tolerant." And, I ask you: why should I have to be tolerate of this
behavior from someone I do not know, who bullies me about a flaw I have?
The child with Aspergers needs to learn the lesson that they can not just say what
they want to others. This lesson may take time to learn and with an apology from
the child's parents, I can let the incident pass. The child with Aspergers to function
in our society in our society needs to learn how to: keep their thoughts to
themselves to function in society without hurting others. This child needs to learn
not to be a bully, and it will be the job of the parent to reinforce the
consequences. With a child with Aspergers, this will take patience and time. The
parents could start by explaining to the child why he can not call someone fat
when he first meets them, residential treatment center and why this is bully
behavior. Use an incident when a child with Aspergers was hurt by a bully. Then
make the child apologize to me directly. After enough times and the building of
empathy relating this when the Aspergers child being bullied, he will begin to
understand that not all thoughts and observations should be said out loud. A life
lesson learned through discipline to correct the behavior that is part of Aspergers,
but needs to be retrained to be socially appropriate and not offend people to
become socially acceptable.
