Y.A.L.E. School Medford Campus

Campus Description

Y.A.L.E. School’s Medford campus in central Burlington County off Route 70, serves students 5 to 14 years of age with social learning disabilities such as ASD, high-functioning autism, and ADHD. The program provides a full day of instruction with an extended school year program available. Student-teacher ratios are low, giving our teachers and staff the time and structure needed for individualized instruction. Our Medford campus operates classrooms in two public school buildings in Medford, allowing students the opportunity to interact with typical peers.

Because many students with Asperger’s struggle with writing, reading comprehension, and pragmatics of language, instruction focuses on developing critical thinking and reasoning skills.

To help with reading and writing, each student uses a personal IPAD/Keyboard. Most students at our Medford campus are on grade level—some are gifted—but many have learning disabilities associated with Asperger’s.

Testimonials about Y.A.L.E. Medford


Former student

“I graduated from Y.A.L.E.’s Medford middle school campus. After that, I attended a public high school, where I was in the computer science academy for two years. I am now in my senior year, where I am the Vice President of the Forensics Speech and Debate team and President of the Co-Exist club, as well as a member of the National Honors Society. I just made Honor Roll for the first marking period of this year, and next fall I plan to attend Rutgers University for political science, history, and communications. I really wanted to thank everyone that helped me get ready for this! I would never be in the position I am now without all the help, support, and tough love I received at Y.A.L.E. School. Thank you so much.”

Mary Lou R.


The staff has been extremely caring and kind, supportive and informative. They always take the time to explain and answer any questions I may have. I have always been informed on a daily basis of how Shane’s day progressed.

Once the mother of a child who didn’t even want to hear the word school, get on the bus, do the tasks that were asked of him, or do his homework, now I am the mother of a successful student at Y.A.L.E. School.”

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.”
