Welcome to Doctor Franklin Perkins School!
We serve children and adolescents with a range of psychiatric, social, emotional, and executive functioning issues. These include: depression; bi-polar disorder; attention-deficit disorder; post traumatic stress disorder; reactive attachment disorder; and childhood schizophrenia. Residents may have other co-existing challenges including substance abuse, eating disorders, history of sexual trauma, physical abuse, and cutting.

Perkins also serves children with mild to moderate neurological impairment in which the choice of treatment is a focus on learning and social development.

Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and Nonverbal Language Disorders

Perkins offers two twelve-month programs for children, adolescents and young adults with Asperger Syndrome. Our program for children ages 12 to 18 years old is specially designed to provide serene living environments which include social and activity areas and single bedrooms in a beautiful homelike setting. In addition to attending school Monday through Friday, residents are provided a range of clinical, social, and recreational programs to support the development of interpersonal skills and independence.

Post-Secondary Program for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome

Perkins offers a unique program for young adults 18 years and older who have completed high school and are interested in college or career. This program provides these individuals with the right combination of social support, independence, clinical and psychiatric services, daily management, tutoring, and transportation, to help young adults reach their personal goals.
