About Vantage Point

Adolescence and the transition to adulthood can be a difficult time for even the most highly functioning young people. Vantage Point by Aspiro is designed for adolescents (ages 13 – 17) and young adults (ages 18 – 28) who face additional challenges as they grapple with a wide range of emotional, learning, neurodevelopmental, psychological and behavioral difficulties. We offer comprehensive wilderness therapy treatment in a dynamic, experiential setting for teens who may be struggling with:

  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Attachment
  • Aspergers
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (level 1)
  • Bullied
  • Depression
  • Developmental Immaturity
  • Electronic/Technology Abuse
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Executive Functioning
  • Learning Differences
  • Limited Food Choices
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Low Motivation
  • Narrow Interests
  • Non-Learning Verbal Disorders (NLD)
  • Parent/Child Conflict
  • Rigid Thinking
  • School Refusals
  • Sensory Issues
  • Social Skill Differences
Many adolescents, especially those with learning or emotional difficulties, have not yet developed the ability to process information verbally and apply it to their lives. They may struggle with connecting cause and effect. These connections are best made through experience. Adventure wilderness therapy offers the opportunity for ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Nonverbal Learning Disorder students to learn firsthand from their own experiences; this is crucial to healthy adolescent development.
