Y.A.L.E. School Southeast at Marlton Campus

YALE-Promo-2012-410

Campus Description

Our Southeast campus, located on route 73, in Marlton, serves students 3 to 14 years of age with autism or pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS).

The program provides a full-day of educational programming, with extended school year services available. Each classroom offers a low student-to-staff ratio. Instruction is based on the principles and practices of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), an evidence-based treatment shown by research to be highly effective for students with an autism spectrum disorder.

To improve student outcomes, the goals in each student’s IEP are measured objectively and frequently and performance data are graphed. Changes to instruction and services are based on data trends, clinical conferences, parent conferences, and IEP requirements.

Testimonials about Y.A.L.E. School Southeast at Marlton

Elias W.

Parent

My wife and I are very happy that we found Y.A.L.E. and got our son admitted into the program. The staff are very qualified, very professional and focused on the educational and growth needs of the students. We see the progress that our son has made—now he sits and plays board games with us at home and the tantrums he used to have are gone—things we now take for granted. In hindsight, we had feared we would never see him get to this level. Even though he still has quite a few years to go at Y.A.L.E., we are already wishing the program could keep him for longer. Y.A.L.E. is a world of a difference from other programs. We know this, because we took our son from a program that promised much but did not deliver.”

Tara and Erik L.

Parents

“To find that Y.A.L.E. School Voorhees employs two BCBAs is a rarity. All the teachers, aides and direct care staff are trained in ABA principles, which means when my daughter is walking down the hall every person knows exactly how to interact and respond to her even when she is not a member of their own classroom. Having this continuity through the school makes for a better learning environment. All of the staff members have become like family to us. We could not be prouder to call Y.A.L.E. School Voorhees “our home”!”

Sue R.

Parent

“Y.A.L.E. School Voorhees campus has been a dream come true for our family. Our daughter is being taught what she needs in a supportive and loving environment. The staff is remarkable! They take such good care of my child. When I first visited, the case manager said, “If your home life with your child is not improving while your child is attending Y.A.L.E., then we aren’t doing our job.” They are doing their job!”
