As an Aspergers school for Tennessee 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 Tennessee teens improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, valuable skills.
Although located in Utah and not Tennessee, we help teens from all over the United States.
Our location provides opportunities for exciting outdoor adventures that are both enjoyable and therapeutic in nature. It can often help for Tennessee teens to be far away from home as it allows them to get a new perspective and focus on themselves without distraction.
We admit boys and girls, ages 13-18, and develop an individual treatment 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 Tennessee 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.
Seven Stars, located in Utah, helps teens from Tennessee and all over the United States. For many parents it can be helpful to send your child away from their home state to get the treatment they need.
Over the course of their stay at our aspergers school, your teen will receive continuous assessments. Your child will be assessed and observed in numerous settings during their time with us, which allows for a thorough and comprehensive evaluation. These assessments help our team develop a treatment plan and suggestions for the next steps of your child’s healing journey.
Each week, students spend time on campus where they take part in academic and therapeutic programming, and off campus exploring the outdoors and learning new adventure activities. During their time on campus, students build social skills and progress academically. We have built a supportive, engaging environment that encourages students to experience growth in their communication and relationship skills. Students build strong, trusting relationships with peers going through similar challenges.
Each week, students spend three days off campus where they take part in adventure activities like canoeing, rock climbing, and hiking that help them break out of their comfort zone.
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.
