Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for Alaska teens, provides academic and therapeutic assistance to struggling teens on the Autism Spectrum. In order to successfully treat a variety of social and academic challenges, we created a comprehensive program that combines many different types of therapies into one. But we don’t just help Alaska teens get temporarily better. We aim to give our students the strategies needed to navigate fuller, happier lives.
We help teens from all over the United States, including Alaska. After a thorough examination of available types of therapies, we concluded that residential and wilderness therapy work very well together. It can take a variety of therapeutic approaches for Alaska teens to find their inner strength and the courage to move forward.
Our Aspergers school treats adolescent girls and boys. We generate a specific program plan based on students’ particular needs, utilizing both individual and group therapy. Determining where a child is academically, socially, and emotionally enables us to identify where growth needs to happen and where a little encouragement can generate major success.

Seven Stars: Get Treatment in Our Aspergers School for Alaska Teens
Effective treatment for teens on the spectrum starts with finding the right program. With an individualized plan for each and every one of our students, we enable them to achieve success. Students come to us with all sorts of backgrounds, and we believe that each one deserves the chance to become the best version of themselves, and receive the support needed to do so.
Although Seven Stars is not located in Alaska, we do help teens from all over the country. Some studies suggest that going away from home for treatment benefits students.
To complete treatment in our Aspergers school, students work through assessments, adventure outings, and therapeutic programming on campus. Both a physical and psychological examination are completed to identify the starting point for treatment. This provides us with all the information we need to plan further steps.
Using the information from their assessment, we designate a specific curriculum for your teen during their treatment at our program. The teens participate in various forms of off-campus therapy throughout this part of the program. In the traditional residential setting, they work on communication skills and are encouraged to practice self-reflection. Through trips off campus, students can learn helpful skills they can easily apply to everyday life, all under the supervision of our experienced staff.
In our Aspergers school, residential treatment programming will be up to four months long depending on the student. It’s then up to Discover Seven Stars and the child’s caregivers to create next steps.
