Seven Stars is an autism boarding school that works with New Mexico teens that are experiencing social, emotional, and academic struggles. In contrast to other autism boarding schools for teens from New Mexico, Seven Stars offers a clinically intensive and holistic program along with our accredited academic program. Seven Stars has an innovative approach to working with teens on the spectrum, blending residential treatment services, adventure programming, and diagnostic services, all with a positive psychology philosophy.
Our autism boarding school is located in Utah, not in New Mexico. However, we help families from all over the country. It is helpful to for New Mexico teens on the spectrum to be taken out of their day-to-day environment, as this helps create a break in the routines that many teens with autism are dependent upon. Although some parents may be hesitant about breaking the routines that their teens hold dearly, it’s important to note that habits and routines change over time. Breaking routines leads to improved habits.
Our autism boarding school helps New Mexico teens become the best version of themselves. With our program, students develop these abilities:
– Self Directed: Teens learn how to self-regulate and adapt when they need to.
– Self Informed: Teens become more aware of how they show up, both emotionally and socially.
– Self Confident: Students feel unique, worthy, and special.
– Self Determined: Teens define their own version of success and how to go after it.
