The 2022 Fall Semester generally begins between mid to late September and early October and continues through mid-January.

Registration Deadline

We offer priority registration to those already enrolled in our groups. For those enrolled in our Spring or Summer groups, we typically offer a period of priority registration and then open enrollment to those on our wait-list. To be added to our wait-list, please contact our intake coordinator at 301-593-6554 x23.

If you need a Fall registration form, please click here to print a copy: Fall Registration Form.  A nonrefundable deposit as well as the completed and signed registeration form is required to secure a place in group. PLEASE NOTE: For those new to our groups, an intake is required prior to registration. See FAQ question #6.

The schedule below is for Fall 2022. The schedule is subject to change, as a minimum enrollment of three or four (3 or 4) registrants per group is required for all groups to begin.  Youth are grouped by age and gender.  We also offer groups for youth who are high functioning but have symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other social impairments.  These groups are co-ed and listed as ASD.
