VIDEO: Mobility Matters — On the Road to Independent Driving and Community Mobility

Americans love cars, and depending on where you live, they’re of critical importance because of the way our transportation system works. If you don’t live in an urban area with widespread public transit, driving is the only way to get to work, school, doctor’s office, the grocery store and other essential destinations. One of the many tricky decisions parents of young people […]

“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 […]

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!”

Elias W.

“My wife and I are very happy that we found Y.A.L.E. and got our son admitted into the program. The staff are very qualified, very professional and focused on the educational and growth needs of the students. We see the progress that our son has made—now he sits and plays board games with us at home and the tantrums he […]

Tara and Erik L

“To find that Y.A.L.E. School employs two BCBAs is a rarity. All the teachers, aides and direct care staff are trained in ABA principles, which means when my daughter is walking down the hall every person knows exactly how to interact and respond to her even when she is not a member of their own classroom. Having this continuity through […]

Jennifer J.

“We continue to be amazed at the progress Olivia has made since starting Y.A.L.E. She has overcome significant challenges and grown academically, socially, and behaviorally.”

Terri H

“My son, Jarrett, is in the seventh grade at Y.A.L.E. School. He gets up EVERY morning wanting to go to school, even on the weekends!! I have SO MUCH respect for the staff and give them so much credit for ALL they do for the children. They take them on outings ( e.g. Target, bowling, McDonald’s) so the kids can […]

Carol and Robert E

“Y.A.L.E. School has the curriculum and resources necessary to address our child’s level of autism. The energetic teaching staff works endlessly to adjust individualized strategies to maximize the learning environment of each child.”

Barbara B.

“Y.A.L.E. School recognizes that education and behavioral issues are not a one-way street and that cooperation with parents to resolve any issues or to further reinforce the interventions taking place at home are necessary. I will always recommend Y.A.L.E. to any parent or caregiver of an autistic child.”

Jennifer and Shawn W.

“Our daughter has been the happiest little girl since being accepted at Y.A.L.E. School. She has come a LONG way and we thank the staff for their hard work. They promised us that she would improve in their program and she is doing just that! Our home is Team Y.A.L.E!”

Christine T.

“My son has shown great improvement in self-regulation and coping skills.  Thanks to Y.A.L.E., he has improved academically and he’s happy to do his homework alongside his twin brother. Now he is proud of himself and his accomplishments. I worked with him for over a year trying to teach him to ride a two wheel bike.  Within two months at Y.A.L.E., Corey was riding a bike without […]

Jasmine J.

“I have to honestly say I was nervous when searching for a new private school for my little man. Before I came to see Y.A.L.E I had already visited numerous schools and wasn’t impressed with any of them, it just didn’t seem like the right place for my son. As soon as I walked into the classroom that Elijah would […]

Mindy H.

“I am so thankful that we found Y.A.L.E. school. My son is making more progress than ever. The staff is amazing and they truly understand autism and all the challenges that are associated. The overall quality of our lives has improved since my son was enrolled at this school. My son loves this school and so do I!”

Eunice D.

“In my opinion, Y.A.L.E. School is the best school for children with autism in South Jersey! My son has learned so much since he began attending. Thomas loves going to school at Y.A.L.E. and the staff are truly amazing.”

Christine D.

“Ethan started out in a preschool program for 3 year olds with disabilities. This is when and where we got the diagnosis all parents dread hearing …autism. He showed improvement in our home district but it became evident that placement outside our district was going to be necessary. I toured several out of district schools but Y.A.L.E. Mullica Twp. immediately […]

Willow C.

“Y.A.L.E. goes above and beyond to attend to the needs of your child. Our son has been at Y.A.L.E. for three years now. Every step of the way we have felt assured and secure in the education our son is getting. Every day there is communication with details of the successes or struggles he has had. Y.A.L.E. allows us to […]

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 […]

Daniel W.

“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.”
