Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for New York teens, is a place where boys and girls, ages 13-17, can spend several months in a safe environment and get mental and emotional support from our team of experts. Our Aspergers school is here to help New York teens on the autism spectrum that are experiencing difficulties socializing or struggling with learning disorders. By using various forms of therapies, such as residential treatment and adventure outings, our New York teens get the best out of both worlds.
Although not located in New York 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.
A wide range of tests and examinations are performed to give us all the information we need to challenge our students on an academic and social level. 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 York 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.
What Can New York Teens Expect from An Aspergers School?
If your New York teen on the autism spectrum needs help, our Aspergers school is a great place to start.
Although Seven Stars is not located in New York, we provide services to teens throughout the country. Often, getting treatment in a different environment than one’s everyday life can be especially successful.
The Seven Stars program combines several therapies into one, enabling our students to determine exactly which kind of therapy works for them.
Our Aspergers school staff thoroughly examines every New York teen upon arrival to establish a mental and physical baseline. Our team makes a plan to fit your child’s needs based on all of the information gathered in the initial examination. If your teen needs some time to adjust to the new environment, we can create a safe space for them to do so.
Throughout our program, students take part in programming that mixes residential and outdoor adventure programming. While on campus, New York teens in our Aspergers school participate in academic and social activities and are supported by individual and group therapies. Thanks to our detailed assessment, we can easily establish to what degree their intellect and their comfort zone can be challenged in order for them to grow.
During their stay, New York teens visit scenic locations near our Aspergers school as part of our outdoor recreation program.
