As an Aspergers school for West Virginia 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, West Virginia teens will improve their social and academic skills, as well as learn completely new, useful skills.
Even though we are not located in West Virginia and instead in Utah, we help teens from all over the U.S.
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 West Virginia teens get a new perspective and provide the opportunity to re-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 West Virginia Teens?
By combining outdoor adventure activities, residential treatment programming, and continuous assessments, Seven Stars helps West Virginia teens on the spectrum heal.
Located away from West Virginia, Seven Stars helps teens from across 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.
Throughout their time at Seven Stars, West Virginia 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.
While off campus, West Virginia teens will experience the natural beauty of Utah, learn outdoor skills, and be more self-sufficient.
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. 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, West Virginia 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.
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.
