Testimonials about Y.A.L.E. School Social Learning

Alyson A.

Parent

After our son experienced a terrible time in the local middle school, we heard about Y.A.L.E. from a friend. Nicolas was in the 4th grade. He spent two wonderful years with Mr. James and his staff, learning new behavioral strategies. He returned to the regular school district at the end of 7th grade. Today he is a junior in high school, motivated, and loving school. He would not be where he is today without the support and guidance of Y.A.L.E. School.”

Ramya and Vincent L.

Parents

Our son has attended many schools but none has been as productive as Y.A.L.E. He has truly excelled academically, well beyond what he achieved at any of his other schools. The teachers at Y.A.L.E. are dedicated, communicate well with us, and are always readily available for any issues. The faculty at Y.A.L.E. help the children to build social relationships. For the first time our son has “friends” and even a “best friend”.”

Robert P.

Parent

Without the assistance of the Y.A.L.E. School team and the program they have perfected for children with Asperger’s, our son would not be thriving as he is currently. We are very fortunate to have Y.A.L.E. School available to us.”
