Y.A.L.E. School Mansfield Township Campus

Campus Description

Y.A.L.E School’s Mansfield Township campus, located in northwestern Burlington County, just off Route 295 and the New Jersey Turnpike, serves students 8 to 14 years of age with social learning disabilities such as ASD, high-functioning autism, and ADHD. The program provides a full-day educational program, with extended school year services available. Small classes and low student-teacher ratios give teachers and staff the time and structure needed to provide individualized instruction.

The Mansfield Township campus operates in a modern public elementary/middle school building, allowing students to interact with typical peers.

Because many students with Asperger’s struggle with writing and reading comprehension, the program emphasizes critical thinking and reasoning skills. To help with reading and writing, each student is provided with a personal IPAD/Keyboard.

Most students at our Mansfield Township campus are on grade level—some are gifted—but many have learning disabilities associated with Asperger’s.

Testimonials about Y.A.L.E. Mansfield Township

Donna C.

Parent

Last night, my son Mitchell had his first Boy Scout den meeting since before the holiday break. Naturally, the boys were excited to see each other and were all full of energy… While the other boys were running around yelling and chasing each other, my son listened to the leader and was the most well-behaved boy there. This is unprecedented behavior for him and I chalk it up to the instruction at Y.A.L.E. and the reduction in stress and anxiety in his life as a result of the curriculum and homework load. Thank you.”

Mike R.

Martial Arts Instructor

“I have had the pleasure of teaching martial arts to students from the Medford and Mansfield Campus since 2004. The teachers and staff are helpful and truly care about the students. We have created a martial arts curriculum that focuses on building character skills like respect, leadership, confidence and teamwork. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn outside of the classroom in a fun and safe learning environment. 

Over the years I have seen what Y.A.L.E. School does for these students first hand. They really get to know each student and prepare them for life. It’s great to see the kids grow and mature through the program.

If you are looking for a place for your child I highly recommend Y.A.L.E. School.”

Parents

There are not enough words to truly convey the level of gratitude that we have as a family for the services, education and support that our son has received while being at Y.A.L.E. School Mansfield Township campus. Once we arrived, we truly felt that we had all been given a second chance to help our son love school and rebuild his confidence and self-worth.

Y.A.L.E has given him the tools to succeed, and to build on in all aspects of his life. We have changed and grown so much as a family from the consistency, unconditional acceptance and dedication of the team at Y.A.L.E, and we will always be grateful, much more than we could ever say.”
