We provide creative, short and long-term interventions that facilitate the continuum of care for patients and DC area youth so that they can make informed and responsible decisions about their health. We do this through comprehensive life-skill education, training, support services, and partnerships with youth-serving organizations who share our vision.
Adolescent Prevention Education Programs (APEP) are managed by the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Children's National Medical Center. APEP targets adolescents in the DC metropolitan area, including patients and area youth.
I am honored that I have the opportunity to recommend CASD. Our son is highly functioning and for nearly 10 years has been misdiagnosed with a variety of different lables from public and private sources. This translated to mismatches in school, the lack of proper services and an accumulation of very terrible experiences in school. Our team consisted of Drs. Raza, Sady and Harris. Their evaluations, conclusions and recommendation have given me peace of mind for the first time and I feel that we know what is going on and can move accordingly. Each are lovely and caring people who involve themselves in the child. I will always be grateful to them and would like to spare other families the hardships that we could have avoided.
