Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for DC teens, provides academic and therapeutic assistance to struggling teens on the Autism Spectrum. Successfully treating the social and academic challenges your child faces begins with our comprehensive program that combines different types of therapies into one. But we don’t just help DC 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 DC. From our research, we determined that combining residential and wilderness therapy proved very successful for teens. It can take a variety of therapeutic approaches for DC teens to find their inner strength and the courage to move forward.
We work with teenagers between the ages of 13-18. For every single one of them, we develop a unique combination of individual and group therapy so they can get the most out of our program. 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 DC Teens
Finding a suitable Aspergers school for teens can be a challenging process. With an individualized plan for each and every one of our students, we enable them to achieve success. It’s critical for us to focus on the innate strengths of each DC teen we admit in order to best serve them.
Seven Stars is not located in DC, but we help teens from all over the United States. Some studies suggest that going away from home for treatment benefits students.
The treatment in our Aspergers school is carried out in a combination of assessments, adventure outings, and therapeutic work in a residential treatment setting. 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. On-campus experiences are focused on improving social skills and finding out what their strengths are. 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. After that, further steps are discussed with the parents.
