Autism School That Helps DC Teens
Our autism school was founded with a mission to help DC teens with various mental disorders on the autism spectrum. We don’t want our students to just get better, we want them to thrive and be successful and independent. Even though there are many obstacles the DC teens have to overcome, our autism school believes that every DC teen is special and has a set of abilities on which we will focus.
Our autism school is located in Utah near many natural wonders that are great for the adventure part of our therapy. However, even if you are located in DC, we would think it would be a good idea for your child to spend time with us.
Sometimes, children on the autism spectrum need to be separated from their daily routines in order to make a mental and emotional progress. Our team of experts is here to make sure that DC teens receive appropriate support and an individual treatment. A comprehensive assessment is done at the beginning to detect strengths and weaknesses of every teen so the best possible treatment plan can be created.
DC teens with problems such as, ADD/ADHD; eating disorders, learning difficulties, family troubles, various addictions to technology or substances, and many others, can all find the help they need in our autism school.

How Can DC Teens Benefit From Our Autism School?
Whether your DC teen is on the autism spectrum, has learning or social disorders, or maybe addiction problems, our autism school might be just what you are looking for. Here at Seven Stars, we offer a comprehensive treatment plan, divided into several phases, for struggling DC teens.
In the first phase, we evaluate every DC teen we admit so we can fully understand their strengths and weaknesses. We believe that every teen is unique, and therefore, needs a unique treatment plan that takes into account his/her abilities and emotional state of mind.
Most of our patients in our autism school don’t require a stabilization period, but we do offer one as part of phase one, just in case a DC teen that came to us needs some time to adjust and find the necessary balance.
In the second phase, we merge together residential and adventure therapy. While staying at our autism school, our students get to socialize with each other, improving their social skills, while being supported by individual and group therapies. The adventure therapy is 100% safe and can last up to 4 days at a time. During that period, DC teens can learn a new skill and get some outdoor experience.
At the end of the treatment in our autism school that can last up to 4 months, progress and future steps are discussed with the family.
