Getting Help At Our Autism Boarding School For Alaska Teens
Our leading autism boarding school helps teens and families from Alaska with a comprehensive and individualized approach to care. Our model combines assessments, traditional residential treatment programming, and adventure outings.
Throughout their time at Seven Stars, we facilitate clinically advanced, comprehensive assessments for all Alaska students. Using these assessments, our goal is to understand and emphasize Alaska students’ strengths (and not to further identify areas of weakness). From there, we are able to build upon these strengths throughout their time at our autism boarding school.
Throughout your child’s time at our autism boarding school, your family will receive individualized multidisciplinary reports about your child’s progress at Seven Stars. The testing and assessments carried out throughout our program strongly informs the duration of treatment for each student. If necessary, at the end of your child’s experience at our autism boarding school, we provide recommendations for continued care and future treatment needs.
Alaska students experience weeks of on-campus residential treatment and off-campus adventure therapy experiences. While Alaska teens are on campus, our warm and safe environment offers a combination of individual therapy, academics, and social activities that create natural friendships between students.
Our adventure activities programming helps students build important skills in a supportive environment. During these adventure expeditions, Alaska students learn about the rewards and consequences for their behaviors through natural consequences in the environment during the moment.
