Autism School for Alaska Teens
Founded by Dr. Gordon Day, our autism school for Alaska teens combines several different types of treatment into one. At our facilities, Alaska teens on the autism spectrum will get everything they need to successfully overcome their obstacles, improve the quality of their lives, and reach their full potential. Our team is diverse and made out of experts who, together, cover every aspect of the treatment.
We at Seven Stars believe that, when combined together, residential treatment and adventure therapy can do wonders for Alaska teens with neurodevelopmental disorders. If needed, we also have a stabilization period in case we admit traumatized or struggling Alaska teens who first need to find their emotional and mental balance before starting with our therapy.
We admit boys and girls in our autism school, ages 13-18, and create an individual program for each of them, challenging them academically and socially in order to get the best from them. It doesn’t matter if your home in Alaska is far away from our autism school in Utah. We encourage families from all over the country to visit our facilities and see for themselves if our environment would benefit their Alaska teens.

Seven Stars: Get Help in our Autism School for Alaska Teens
With so many options available, finding a suitable autism school for your teen can be difficult. Seven Stars provides a detailed treatment plan, specially made for each Alaska teen we admit. By combining residential and outdoor activities, Alaska teens can get the best from both worlds.
Upon arrival, every Alaska teen we admit is assessed by numerous psychological, health, and academic tests. We want to get a clear picture of our patients’ abilities so we can make sure to challenge them enough to develop their potential, but not too much to overwhelm them. If a Alaska teen is traumatized or has issues with adapting to a new environment, we offer a stabilization period that can last up to two weeks. Once a Alaska student is ready for further therapy, we continue with the second phase of our treatment.
The second phase can last up to 4 months and consists of residential treatment at our autism school and adventure therapy at beautiful locations in Utah. While the Alaska teens are indoors, they receive individual and group therapies and participate in the academic and social life of our autism school. This gives them an opportunity to explore their mental capacities as well as making new friends.
