As an Aspergers school for Washington teens, at Seven Stars 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 Washington teens improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, valuable skills.
Even though we are located in Utah and not Washington, 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 Washington 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.
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 Washington Teens?
Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for teens ages 13-17, 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 Washington and all over the United States. In fact, it can be beneficial to send your teen away from home to receive treatment.
Throughout their time at Seven Stars, Washington teens are continuously assessed. 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. 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. On campus, students take part in academic programming through online classrooms and engage in social activities with their peers. In a new environment, guided by experienced staff, Washington teens build new social and communication skills that they can use to learn how to make and keep friends. As they build friendships with fellow students, many of whom are facing issues similar to your child’s, your child will learn new ways to perceive the emotions and gestures of those around them and feel more confident in their self expression.
While off campus, Washington 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.
