Who We Help
Helping Teens With Autism Spectrum Disorder Level 1, Among Others
Seven Stars helps students of all genders, ages 13 through 17, struggling with neurodevelopmental issues including autism and neurodiverse challenges, executive function deficits (ADHD/ADD), and learning disorders (language-based, verbal and nonverbal). These neurodevelopmental issues, like autism, are thought to be a primary cause of emotional and behavioral dysregulation.
As with everything we do, Seven Stars’ goal is not to enumerate the challenges a student might be presenting with, but to find the strengths of each student through the multidisciplinary approach of our program – structured residential treatment programming and off-campus activities that build on each students’ successes (the foundation of positive psychology). We strive to make each student as successful as possible through continual learning & growth.
