“The staff has been extremely caring and kind, supportive and informative. They always take the time to explain and answer any questions I may have. I have always been informed on a daily basis of how Shane’s day progressed. Once the mother of a child who didn’t even want to hear the word school, get on the bus, do the […]

Dianne and William M.

“Prior to Y.A.L.E., our son was misunderstood, unsafe due to lack of supervision and was very frustrated in school. He was isolating himself, had very low self-esteem and was regressing intellectually and academically. In just a few short months at Y.A.L.E. School, he has shown significant improvements both at school and at home. He has made friends that share common […]

Katina B.

“My son was spent most of his school years feeling misunderstood by his peers and in some cases, also by members of his former school’s faculty. He was bullied almost daily. I removed my son from public school to home-school him as a result. This left my son feeling depressed and lonely. As a mother, I felt helpless until I […]

“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 […]

Donna C.

“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 […]

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.”

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 […]

Dorothy G.

“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.!”
