Every teen struggle is different. For example, two teens may be acting out. To the naked eye, it may seem like the two teens are behaving in exactly the same way. However, one teen may have a form of mental illness, while another might be responding to stress. Or something else entirely. Without a full assessment, the true nature of the issue may be impossible to pinpoint and, consequently, treat. At Seven Stars, a residential treatment center for teens on the autism spectrum, the first step following an option stabilization (a two-week transition period) is an assessment that analyzes every childs psychological profile.
