As an Aspergers school for Rhode Island teens, at Seven Stars we believe that every child that comes to us will grow from our individual approach and therapeutic process. With a combination of wilderness and residential therapies, as well as group and individual sessions with therapists, Rhode Island teens are sure to improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, useful skills.
Even though we are not located in Rhode Island and instead in Utah, we help teens from all over the U.S.
Our location makes it possible to experience exciting outdoor adventures that are enjoyable and better yet, therapeutic in nature. It can often help for Rhode Island teens to be far away from home as it allows them to get a new perspective and focus on themselves without distraction.
We treat boys and girls, ages 13-18, and develop an individual treatment plan for each of our students. Our students suffer from a variety of different neurodevelopmental disorders and are at various social and academic levels, so the individual approach is the only way to go.
Thanks to our comprehensive assessment of each of our students, we can determine and focus on their strengths, which will allow them to gain more confidence and overcome their weaknesses.

What Can An Aspergers School Offer Rhode Island Teens?
Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for teens ages 13-18, utilizes a combination of assessments, adventure based activities, and community-based residential treatment programming to help teens on the spectrum heal.
Located away from Rhode Island, Seven Stars helps teens from across the United States. Sending your child out of state to receive treatment can give your family the space and time you need to fully heal.
Over the course of their stay at our aspergers school, your teen will receive continuous assessments. We are able to create a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s needs because they are assessed in a number of settings and environments including during adventure outings, socializing with peers on campus, and during therapy sessions. These assessments help our team develop a treatment plan and suggestions for the next steps of your child’s healing journey.
While off campus, Rhode Island teens will experience the natural beauty of Utah, learn outdoor skills, and be more self-sufficient.
On a weekly basis, students will spend time both on campus engaging in academic and therapeutic programming on campus and adventure activities off campus. On campus, students take part in academic programming through online classrooms and engage in social activities with their peers. We have built a supportive, engaging environment that encourages students to experience growth in their communication and relationship skills. 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.
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.
