Seven Star Students

Seven Stars is for families with teenagers struggling with Autism Spectrum Disorders, learning issues, neurodevelopmental disorders and executive function deficits (AD/HD). Our students come to us because they are struggling with the transitional demands of adolescence.

Typically, our students want to be successful, but the increasing complexity of adolescence has exceeded their current capacity to manage social relationships, academics, emotions and behaviors. Our students present with many strengths and challenges.

Our foundational philosophy is that our students have the ability to succeed if they are given a safe, therapeutic environment that provides the opportunity to practice new skills, build awareness, increase awareness and mindfulness, and build self-efficacy. Success is possible and Seven Stars is here to help every step of the way. We turn challenge into an opportunity for growth and success.


My child is living independently at his college and is attending classes. After completing Seven Stars, he graduated almost a year early from high school. He is thriving. We are so grateful for Seven Stars and are so proud of our son

My son has been home since the first part of July. He has completed another season of mountain biking in the fall. He did well and was accepted by his new high school team. He finished his first semester of high school and passed all of his classes. He has a group of friends at his new school and is excelling socially thanks to all of you at Seven Stars. There are still bumps in the road but I believe he has learned how to get through things with better coping mechanisms. Thank you for everything you all did and your patience with my son.
