Getting Help At Our Autism Boarding School For Arizona Teens
With a whole-person approach to care, our comprehensive autism boarding school helps struggling teens from Arizona with individualized treatment. Our approach splits treatment into a combination of residential treatment programming, assessments, and outdoor adventure programming.
Seven Stars includes an evaluation component that includes clinically sophisticated assessments for all students from Arizona. The purpose of these evaluations is to understand the unique strengths that a Arizona student has, instead of increasing their knowledge on challenges. From there, we are able to build upon these strengths throughout their time at our autism boarding school.
During your child’s stay at our autism boarding school, you and your family will get regular updates as well as individualized multidisciplinary reports which highlight your child’s progress while at Seven Stars. The testing and assessments carried out throughout our program strongly informs the duration of treatment for each student. At the end of your child’s stay at our autism boarding school, we can provide recommendations for next steps and continued care (if needed).
Students from Arizona have weeks of both on-campus residential treatment programming and off-campus/outdoor adventure therapy activities. When Arizona students are on campus, they are provided with a structured, home-like environment which combines academics, individual therapy, and activities designed to promote friendships amongst students.
Our fun adventure activities encourage students to try new things while they develop valuable skills in a nurturing environment. With our adventure excursions, students from Arizona understand the effects and consequences of their actions which relates to the natural consequences they witness in nature.
