The WWASP group of programs was once formerly affiliated with at least for marketing purpose.  Rumor suggested that there was also indirect common ownership with Robert Litchfield of La Verkin, Utah, rumored to be invested in some or all of these programs.  We can't confirm that he was an owner or part owner.

FamilyLightsm is an educational consulting firm specializing in work with families with a young person with behavioral, emotional or psychological difficulties.  We offer in-depth personal guidance to families on a fee basis and free guidance on the internet. FamilyLightsm attempts to be fully objective and accepts no advertising nor referral fees.

This was roughly the same group once known as the "Teen Help" group, also a group affiliated for at least marketing purposes. (Not that the group we are concerned about is NOT affiliated with any organization we know of currently using the name "Teen Help." 

FamilyLight sm will withholds  support and recommendation for  admission to any facility now or previously connected with Robert or Narvin Litchfield or the former WWASP or Teen Help group of schools and programs, pending return of completed questionnaires to us, and opportunity to investigate allegations in these articles.  Due to past history of lawsuits, FamilyLight sm will also require immunity form liability prior to reviewing these programs for publication.

FamilyLight sm is aware, despite our reservations about these programs, that they have helped many teens.  Please take our disclaimer below very seriously.

While you wait for us to present a more complete review, please look around this website.  Look at our Guidelines -- a fairly comprehensive statement of what we believe quality is all about.  If you come to a search and planning process with limited experience, this is an opportunity for you to find some principles to measure schools and programs against.

Keep coming back to see the updates. Look at "What's New" (Announcements).  In spring of 2009 we expect to have returns from schools, programs, and related organizations published, giving deeper insight into these than has ever been available on the web before.

Disclaimer: No  program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation.  When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree.  When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source.  We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance.  It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines.  Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
