Why Vantage Point?

Vantage Point by Aspiro is built on the foundational idea that facing and overcoming challenges creates positive changes in self-efficacy. Self-efficacy refers to the belief that one can overcome challenges and create desired outcomes.

Every child’s struggle is unique. 

Some struggles require a more focused method of treatment than what standard wilderness therapy programs provide.

Vantage Point by Aspiro provides a more comprehensive opportunity for assessment and treatment than most traditional wilderness therapy programs. Vantage Point employs Aspiro’s research-based model to exemplify healthy relationships, increase self-efficacy, and foster a sense of autonomy through skill enhancement. The Vantage Point by Aspiro wilderness therapy programs were designed to help students who struggle with:
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Learning disabilities
  • Processing issues
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Social deficits
  • Executive function deficits
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
More specifically, the wilderness therapy program seek to address challenges and learning disabilities such as excessive video game or screening addictions, computer addictions, impulsivity, verbal aggression, unhealthy hygiene or eating habits, parent-child conflict, academic difficulties, cognitive rigidity, limited friendships, and poor organizational skills through a variety of methods.

 

Wilderness Therapy for Teens

With Social Differences, Attention Deficits, and Learning Disabilities

Much of the success of Vantage Point’s wilderness therapy program is attributed to the ability to operate and process certain things “in the moment,” otherwise known as “In Vivo” therapy. The “In Vivo” method allows students to learn more experientially. This helps to teach students, particularly those with learning disabilities, to process information in way that makes it more normalized. In addition, the opportunity to expose these students to many different novel environments enables the treatment team to provide a more functional assessment of clinical needs and learning disabilities; thus, allowing the program to target specific areas of skill development.
