“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 […]

“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 […]

“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 […]

“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 […]

“My child was oppositional and defiant to authority, but the Y.A.L.E. School has taught him that every action has a reaction. The school has helped him learn to be accountable for his actions. From the beginning of the school year until present, he has progressed academically. He is maturing and becoming productively responsible. Thank you, all.”

“My 14-year-old started struggling in school in fifth grade when he was put on many different medicines. He has had a roller coaster of moods and issues since. His old school was not understanding or helpful. Then he started Y.A.L.E. in eighth grade and it has been great! The staff is wonderful and go above and beyond to help my […]

“As a family, we feel blessed to have our 9-year-old attend Y.A.L.E. School. It has been such a pleasure. He is much calmer when “homework” time comes—the difference is beyond words. We never truly knew the role that special education could play in his success. Your finely-tailored program addresses his needs and then some. At times, he still needs redirection […]
