Although not located in New Jersey and instead in Utah, we help teenagers across the country become the best versions of themselves. Since we believe that every child is unique, we design an individual approach for each of our students.
To determine how best to support your child’s unique needs, we perform various examinations to get key information about their strengths and weaknesses. Feeling safe and supported is crucial to the treatment process. Faced with challenging situations, students will uncover the best version of themselves. With more confidence and a brighter outlook, your New Jersey child will be prepared to take on life’s challenges using the knowledge and skills they’ve gained in therapy at our Aspergers school. Wilderness therapy instills the courage needed to help students learn to navigate social situations more effectively.
