Special Education Resources Online

Y.A.L.E. School has a long tradition of collaborating with parents and school districts to develop and implement individualized special education programs to meet the unique needs of every student.

When parents are new to special education, or are entering a new stage of the special education process, they need trusted sources of information. When questions arise, Y.A.L.E. School staff can help parents understand educational programs, supports and services, including academic, transition, social skills development and related services.

The following online resources provide user-friendly information about the procedural and legal issues related to special education:
