As an Aspergers school for Wyoming 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 Wyoming teens improve their academic and social skills, as well as learn completely new, valuable skills.
Even though we are located in Utah and not Wyoming, 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. It can often help for Wyoming 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 create an individual treatment program 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 to allow them to gain confidence and overcome their weaknesses.

What Can An Aspergers School Offer Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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. 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. Based on those assessments, our team of experts is able to determine the best therapeutic approach for each Wyoming teen.
Over the week, students split their time between therapeutic and academic programming on campus and adventure programming off campus. On campus, students take part in academic programming through online classrooms and engage in social activities with their peers. The goal here is to realize that with a different perception of their surroundings and other people, Wyoming 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.
While off campus, Wyoming 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.
