“Just the other day as we were celebrating Royce’s 9th birthday I began to think about how far he has come. The Y.A.L.E. School has played a major role in his development. His first few years of school in our district was very tough for him and our family. Once he enrolled at Y.A.L.E. I began to see him change gradually […]

“I could not be happier about my grandson’s teacher, he just loves her.”

Heather

“My 12 year old is on his third year at Y.A.L.E. We have experienced three teachers and three classrooms and in those three years there has not been one occasion in which I was not pleased with his care at this school. If a problem or issue arises the fully competent staff address the situation or problem in the kindest […]

“I want to say thank you for taking time out to be compassionate and caring and for giving my son a fair chance to transition to your school and become a part of the team.  He is happy and doing very well.  I know we made the right choice. I’ve been so impressed that I’ve recommended your school to a […]

“A few weeks ago I visited the Green Tech Lab in Cherry Hill with my mom to observe my brother, Zachary D.  We arrived at Green Tech prior to the students’ arrival.  As the students were approaching the building, Zachary had a meltdown on the bus ride.  Several staff members were needed to assist Zachary in order to calm him […]

“What a great difference I have seen in my son while he’s been attending Y.A.L.E.! The principal and staff are just so awesome and go above and beyond for their students. When my son first began attending Y.A.L.E., he started with a negative attitude. Academics were never his problem, it was his behavior — and with the special care from […]

“I have consulted at Y.A.L.E. School’s Audubon campus for three years. During that time, I have found the staff to be committed, professional and able to teach autistic students with specific strategies designed to maximize the acquisition of appropriate behaviors, as well as improve academic skills. I have seen the academic improvement specifically using direct instruction.”

Maria N.

“My grandson has flourished at Y.A.L.E.! There are times when he gets upset but I feel especially this last year that his emotional needs have been met. He is growing into a positive young man and besides the home upbringing, rules and respect that he is expected to live up to, I truly feel the staff at Y.A.L.E. are definitely […]

Greg and Janice R.

“Everyone at Y.A.L.E. has been amazing. From the minute we first sat down and met with them we knew our son would be in good hands. His teacher and the rest of the staff at Y.A.L.E. School Mullica Twp. have been doing a great job with our son. His language has improved immensely and we can see the growth in his academics […]

Kent Johnson, Ph.D.

“Y.A.L.E. has been a pleasure to work with this year! Implementing evidence-based strategies to make large improvements in student performance requires major changes in grouping students for instruction, staff training and development, and classroom culture change. Y.A.L.E.’s teachers and administrators have shown a deep commitment to making these changes, and are adjusting nicely to them. They avoid the common pitfall […]

Jennifer T.

“My son has progressed with Y.A.L.E. School’s help. His grades have improved due to the help of his teacher. Y.A.L.E. allows him to focus on his academics and deal with his behavior. Thank you to the staff for all of their help with my son’s progress with his education and for helping him to deal with life on ‘Life’s Terms’.”

Steve S.

“My previous special education school and my local board of education had already written me off at the age of 8 prior to attending Y.A.L.E. School. Within a year after I finished my time at Y.A.L.E., I was declassified and never turned back! At the Cherry Hill campus I was not only met with support and empathy, but I was given opportunities […]

Susan O.

“The Standard 9 Program is exactly what my son with Asperger’s needed after high school.  He has a high IQ but did not have adequate social skills or the perseverance and motivation to complete tasks that were not in his area of interest.  Since attending Y.A.L.E., he has grown in so many ways. He is taking college level courses and […]

Maria McClure

“My name is Maria McClure and I am a social worker. I had the wonderful experience of working with Y.A.L.E. School Mullica Township. The program was easy to be reached by phone or in person. The teachers and staff were cooperative and helpful with suggestions. Y.A.L.E. School went above and beyond what they needed to do, in my experience. The entire […]

Bridget D.

“This is our son’s freshmen year and he attends Y.A.L.E. at the Cedar Creek HS campus. We have been very happy so far with the strides that he is making. Our son has mastered some skills that not so long ago were too difficult for him. He’s loving school and the new friends he is meeting!”

Jessica S.

“Y.A.L.E School has been a great thing for my family. Once my son was out of his old school it was a major improvement. I also like his current teacher, she has taken the time to really understand my son and to see where I am coming from. Thank you Y.A.L.E School.”

Pat and Rob D.

“Our daughter, now age 16, was in public school until the beginning of Grade 7 when she had a very serious episode of OCD/anxiety on top of her existing Asperger’s diagnosis. She spent the remainder of grade 7 getting home schooling from the district and started at Y.A.L.E.’s Medford campus in 8th grade. She was in a very, very fragile state […]

Amanda Copes, M.A. CCC-SLP

“I coordinate externship experiences for undergraduate students, and the Y.A.L.E. School Northfield program has been extremely rewarding. With each semester that students have completed externships at Y.A.L.E., the feedback is always positive. Students comment on how supportive and nurturing the staff is to Y.A.L.E. students. The Stockton University students have enriching experiences working with children with autism and related disorders.”

Mark Roman

“It has been a pleasant experience working as a case manager with the Y.A.L.E. School Voorhees campus. The staff and administration are always friendly and courteous. They provide a positive and welcoming climate for students, families and case managers. The students are well managed and given individual care for their specific needs. I praise the staff for the tremendous effort […]

Sue R

“Y.A.L.E. School 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 […]

Nicole F.

“I could not have asked for a better school to have my son succeed. I have seen a large change in Jadah since he became a student at Y.A.L.E.. I could not ask for a better team to work with Jadah at difficult times. Before attending Y.A.L.E., he didn’t want to go to school, but now I can’t get him […]

Mary Ann G.

“We are so thankful that Y.A.L.E. exists! Without them, we would have an arduous job just getting through a regular school day. We truly appreciate the over the top techniques that Y.A.L.E. staff utilize to educate our special child. The diligent and dedicated efforts of those at Y.A.L.E. always bring about a positive improvement in behavior. Thank you again and […]

Dorothy S.

“My son has Asperger’s and started at the Northfield campus in 4th grade. When he started at Y.A.L.E., he was a scared little kid, but now he will be beginning his senior year as a well-mannered, well-rounded, upstanding, intelligent young man. Being at Y.A.L.E. has taught him how to believe in himself and never give up on dreams. He plans […]

Maria N.

“Public school did not have the answer for my Elliot, and I did not want my child labeled as a problem child, but rather as a child who needed a little something different in the way his education was delivered to him. He has been at Y.A.L.E. for a year and a half, and the change in understanding of others […]

Matthew Tincani, Ph.D., BCBA-D

“The Y.A.L.E. School’s programs have consistently been the most innovative and high quality in the Delaware Valley. They were the first to embrace the private school within a public school model for students with autism, and their campuses for students with Asperger’s Syndrome are the best of their kind in the region. I would not hesitate to send one of […]

Michele Scott

“The Y.A.L.E. Audubon staff and program are wonderful! The staff are informative, talented and put the needs of the students first. They are hard working and communicate effectively with myself and the district. Kudos to the Y.A.L.E. School Audubon staff!”

Hilda Rivera

“Leaders at The Y.A.L.E. School Northfield campus have worked with me and my staff to help clients identify, control and change negative behaviors. They have worked closely with us to ensure our staff understood the Individual Service Plans (ISP’s) and behavioral plans, and knew how to correctly implement them in the school, at home and in the community.”

Andres J. Pumariega, M.D.

“Having visited Y.A.L.E.’s Medford campus, I was impressed with the individualized attention that students receive, the integration of behavioral and educational approaches, the multiple approaches used to positively engage students, and the orientation to transitioning students back to regular classrooms. I have had patients who attended Y.A.L.E. and had very good results. I commend you on your great work.”

Howard Margolis, Ed.D.

“For more than a decade I’ve observed The Y.A.L.E. School programs. I’ve constantly been impressed by The Y.A.L.E. School’s high quality of instruction, ongoing monitoring of student progress, and ongoing attempts of teachers and administrators to improve what is already a fine set of programs for humanely educating children and youth with special needs. If I had to choose three […]

Jessica Glass Kendorski Ph.D., NCSP, BCBA-D

“The Y.A.L.E. School Medford campus’s school within a school model is a unique and innovative approach that supports students’ individualized needs.

The model offers students the academic, behavioral and social supports they need for success, within a school environment that fosters relationships, encourages meaningful engagement in school activities, and provides a true school experience.

 As a board certified behavior analyst and […]
