“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.”

Celeste and John H.

“We hope that over time, the pioneering work at Y.A.L.E. will inspire even more awareness of diversity and lead to paradigm shifts that encourage more flexible and innovative learning techniques even within mainstream education. By seeing what you are accomplishing, it presents a hopeful picture of what education can be where truly no child is “left behind.””

Ramya and Vincent L.

“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 […]

“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 […]

Karen and Stephen S

“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 […]

Patricia and Mark H.

“Our son’s experiences in public school were extremely stressful, both in self-contained and inclusion settings, exacerbated by the inexperience of teachers and administrators in dealing with children on the autism spectrum. He would have frequent meltdowns. Since he came to Y.A.L.E. we have seen significant progress in his ability to self-regulate his emotions and behaviors at home, in the classroom […]

Allison P.

“My son began attending Y.A.L.E. School Mansfield Township following a disastrous second-grade year in public school. Significant behavioral outbursts were an almost daily occurrence for him in public school; at Y.A.L.E. School they are nonexistent, which is a change I attribute in large part to the school’s innovative behavioral program. I am thrilled with the high quality academic program at […]

Tracy M.

“He was welcomed by Y.A.L.E. staff and all of the students and within the first week I saw such a positive change in him that it brought me to tears. The field trips, which are part of teaching the children social skills, have been so helpful and his behaviors in public settings have improved greatly. The staff at Y.A.L.E. is […]

“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 […]

Ellen S.

“Through each stumbling block the staff at Y.A.L.E.’s Standard 9 program never gave up on my son!  I have seen so much growth in the last four years. The Y.A.L.E. staff  found him a internship that he LOVES!  In June this internship will become his job!”

Lora R.

“Y.A.L.E. School’s many facets of creative learning offer education with a refreshing perspective that kids fall in love with. I couldn’t be happier with the program offered by Y.A.L.E. Cherry Hill, from administration to teaching staff.”

Abigail and José R.

“Y.A.L.E. School has brought life back to my son and to my family. I am very grateful for the time, the patience, and dedication the staff takes to take a broken vessel and turn it into something almost perfect. I would be remiss if I did not refer another parent that might go through the same struggles I went through. […]

Pam M.

“The right classroom environment for a child with Asperger’s can make a world of difference. At Y.A.L.E., our son actually enjoys school, excels academically and has made friends. In the structured supportive school environment of Y.A.L.E., he is learning how to cope with adverse situations, make lasting friendships and gaining a meaningful education.”

Deborah M.

“I cannot thank you and the staff at Y.A.L.E. School enough. The change in my son’s attitude regarding school is nothing short of miraculous. He can’t wait to get there in the morning and when he comes home, he is in such a great mood. Even the idea of homework is okay, which has never happened before. He thinks the […]

Audrey and Robert M

“Y.A.L.E. School has transformed our son’s quality of life. He finally has a great sense of belonging.”

Tracy H.

“My son started at Y.A.L.E. in middle school and is now in 10th grade.  The transition from middle school to high school was so smooth.  The staff is very helpful and creative with my son’s ever–changing needs.  The life skills course has had such a positive impact and has given him many useful  tools for independence.  Before coming to Y.A.L.E. he was so […]

“I am writing to express my deepest thanks and appreciation for everything your school and its staff have done for my grandson. Since he started in September, he has become a different child and student. He no longer says he hates school. He does his homework by himself (which my daughter appreciates), and he no longer claims he is the […]

Diane G

“I am so thankful for the teachers and the staff at Y.A.L.E. School. They GET autism! My son is now blossoming playing sports and building long term friendships. He loves his school and so do I!”

DeAnn C.

“Y.A.L.E. School was instrumental in my son’s transitioning back into a public school environment. He felt safe, was able to socialize as well as participate in the sports programs offered. He will be graduating June 2015 with plans on attending college in the fall because of the skills he learned at the Mansfield Twp. & Cherry Hill campuses. Thank you for […]

Dawn A.

“My son is in his 5th year at Y.A.L.E. School, and I know he wouldn’t be the person he is today without the help of their committed and caring staff. They go above and beyond with the teaching of citizenship, social skills, self-esteem, academics and transition skills. Thank you, Y.A.L.E.!”

Jean R.

“Y.A.L.E. has changed not only my son’s life but my life as well. The changes in my son are immeasurable. For years, just getting him to school was a challenge. Every day was a battle. Today, after only a few months, he gets on the bus daily, without challenge and looks forward to his school day. He participates in gym […]

“Y.A.L.E. is largely responsible for saving a “lost child”. George was floundering at his public middle school, both academically and socially. He has become indiscernible from any typical child, thanks to Y.A.L.E.!”

Donna L.

“Finding Y.A.L.E. was like winning the lottery. Our 8-year-old son is now being educated in a safe environment where he is recognized as the UNIQUE individual that he is. Placing him into this ABA-based program halfway through second grade was the best decision we ever made. He is achieving goals at such an amazing pace! Kudos to the Audubon staff. […]

Cheryl M.

“My son has thrived behaviorally and academically over the last couple of years. Thank you for teaching my son many, many things beyond what other programs offer.  Most of all, thank you for showing your love and compassion for our kids each and every day!”

Tina A.

“Y.A.L.E. School is fabulous! Since my son started at the age of six, all of his teachers and the staff have been wonderful. They have helped my son excel to higher levels and to work well with the other children. I love the school.”

Dr. Tom McCool, Ed.D.

“This program has miraculously changed the lives of the students and their families.  …They serve as examples of what can be done when the right combination of expertise and resources are made available to children and families that comprise this growing population impacted by autism.”

“Y.A.L.E. School is one of those places where kids who are different can feel safe and learn the skills to succeed in the wider world. We need more schools like this. I wish I’d been able to attend when I was young!”
