As an Aspergers school for Pennsylvania teens, at Seven Stars we believe that every child that comes to us will grow from our individual approach and therapeutic process. We use a combination of wilderness and residential therapies, as well as group and individual sessions with therapists, to help Pennsylvania teens improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, valuable skills.
Although located in Utah and not Pennsylvania, we help teens from all over the United States.
Our location provides opportunities for new, exciting outdoor adventures that are both fun and therapeutic in nature. Sometimes, being far away from home can help Pennsylvania teens get a new perspective and allow them to focus on themselves.
We treat boys and girls, ages 13-17, and develop an individual treatment plan for each of our students. To treat a variety of different neurodevelopmental disorders and account for the different social and academic levels our students are at, an individual approach is the only way to go.
Our comprehensive assessment of each of our students allows us to establish and focus on their strengths, which will allow them to gain more confidence and overcome their weaknesses.

What Can An Aspergers School Offer Pennsylvania Teens?
By combining outdoor adventure activities, residential treatment programming, and continuous assessments, Seven Stars helps Pennsylvania teens on the spectrum heal.
Seven Stars, located in Utah, helps teens from Pennsylvania and all over the United States. In fact, it can be beneficial to send your teen away from home to receive treatment.
Over the course of their stay at our aspergers school, your teen will receive continuous assessments. Students are assessed in a variety of settings including in school, during adventure outings off campus, and in their day to day interactions with peers and staff members. From the assessments, our team can help you better understand the challenges that your child is facing and determine treatment options moving forward.
On a weekly basis, students will spend time both on campus engaging in academic and therapeutic programming on campus and adventure activities off campus. During their time on campus, students build social skills and progress academically. The goal here is to realize that with a different perception of their surroundings and other people, Pennsylvania teens need to develop a different approach to deal with everyday situations and to successfully communicate with the people around them. By interacting with other students dealing with similar challenges, and through individual and group therapy, our students learn how to express themselves and be more aware of other people’s emotions.
While off campus, Pennsylvania teens will experience the natural beauty of Utah, learn outdoor skills, and be more self-sufficient.
At the end of programming at Seven Stars, our Aspergers school creates a multidisciplinary report for the parents so they can see how much of a progress their child has made and what to do next.
