At Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for South Dakota teens, we believe that every child that comes to us will benefit from our therapy and individual approach. We use a combination of wilderness and residential therapies, as well as group and individual sessions with therapists, to help South Dakota teens improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, valuable skills.
Although located in Utah and not South Dakota, we help teens from all over the United States.
Our location makes it possible to experience exciting outdoor adventures that are enjoyable and better yet, therapeutic in nature. Sometimes, being far away from home can help South Dakota teens get a new perspective and provide the opportunity to re-focus on themselves.
We admit boys and girls, ages 13-17, and create an individual treatment program for each of our students. With so many different neurodevelopmental disorders our students suffer from, as well as the different social and academic level they are at, 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 to allow them to gain confidence and overcome their weaknesses.

What Can An Aspergers School Offer South Dakota Teens?
By combining outdoor adventure activities, residential treatment programming, and continuous assessments, Seven Stars helps South Dakota teens on the spectrum heal.
Located away from South Dakota, Seven Stars helps teens from across 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, South Dakota teens need to develop a different approach to deal with everyday situations and to successfully communicate with the people around them. Students build strong, trusting relationships with peers going through similar challenges.
Three days each week, students take part in off campus adventure activities where they learn new exciting skills and gain confidence in themselves.
As programming reaches its end, our Aspergers school finalizes a multidisciplinary report that helps you better understand the growth your child has experienced and plans for next steps in treatment.
