Autism Spectrum

Across four autism campus locations, we provide a consistent educational experience in order to ensure seamless services for our students. We offer ten month programs featuring low student-to-staff ratios, supervision by highly-trained BCBAs on staff, a comprehensive curriculum focusing on academic achievement and independence, intensive transition support, integrated and consultative speech services, support for families with regular workshops and parent training sessions, and an extended school year program in the summer.

Emotional Support

Some students may have a clinical diagnosis of anxiety disorder, ADHD, mood, personality, obsessive-compulsive, or oppositional-defiant disorders, and/or specific learning disability. Most struggle with effective relationships with peers and adults. Students 14 years of age and older receive individualized transition planning and preparation. The program’s intensive school-to-work curriculum includes vocational planning and support, job skills training and mentoring, and practical on-the-job experience in the community.

Social Learning

Our social learning campuses serve students 5 to 21 years of age with social learning disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, specific learning disabilities, emotional or social disabilities; and anxiety disorders. These programs provides a full day of instruction with an extended school year program available. Our “school-within-a-school” campuses located within public school buildings allow students the opportunity to interact with typical peers. All campuses offer transition planning and support, community-based instruction, regular workshops and parent trainings, related services and an extended school year program.

“Y.A.L.E. School is one of those places where kids who are different can feel safe and learn the skills to succeed in the wider world. We need more schools like this. I wish I’d been able to attend when I was young!”

Think CARING

At Y.A.L.E. School, we believe that every student can reach his or her potential given the right instruction and the right environment. We provide evidence-based special education services—within a school-wide culture of optimism and understanding—to students 3 to 21 years of age with social, emotional, neurological, behavioral, and learning disabilities.

Think INDIVIDUAL

Y.A.L.E. School teachers bring compassion into the classroom, and use teaching methods that have been shown to work. Our challenging academics are individualized to meet each student at their own level and help them advance.

Think Y.A.L.E.

Since 1976, Y.A.L.E. School’s mission has remained consistent: To provide a structured, enriched, and safe environment that meets each student’s educational needs, and helps each student develop the knowledge and skills to become an independent and responsible citizen. At Y.A.L.E. School, we believe every student deserves high quality, evidence-based instructional strategies designed to promote meaningful progress.
