“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 tasks that were asked of him, or do his homework, now I am the mother of a successful student at Y.A.L.E. School.”

Parent

“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 found out about the Y.A.L.E. School Medford campus.

I am ecstatic about the progress my child has made! He actually looks forward to going to school each day. This wouldn’t be possible with the care and support of the Y.A.L.E. School teachers, assistants and counselors.”

“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.”

“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.””

“I’ve seen a big difference since my granddaughter has started at Y.A.L.E. School, Ellisburg Campus. She loves this school because she gets along with her peers. She is working in school and saving her money. She has a new outlook on life.”

Martial Arts Instructor

“I have had the pleasure of teaching martial arts to students from the Medford and Mansfield Campus since 2004. The teachers and staff are helpful and truly care about the students. We have created a martial arts curriculum that focuses on building character skills like respect, leadership, confidence and teamwork. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn outside of the classroom in a fun and safe learning environment.

Over the years I have seen what Y.A.L.E. School does for these students first hand. They really get to know each student and prepare them for life. It’s great to see the kids grow and mature through the program.

If you are looking for a place for your child I highly recommend Y.A.L.E. School.”

Dianne and William M.

Parents

“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 interests, he now eats in the cafeteria no longer isolating himself and he likes gym class for the first time ever. He comes home nearly every day sharing what interesting new things he has learned, and most importantly he is HAPPY.”

Pat and Rob D.

Parents

“Our daughter, now age 16, was in public school until the beginning of Grade 7 when she had a very serious episode of OCD/anxiety on top of her existing Asperger’s diagnosis. She spent the remainder of grade 7 getting home schooling from the district and started at Y.A.L.E.’s Medford campus in 8th grade. She was in a very, very fragile state when she began her schooling at Y.A.L.E.. We were extremely concerned about placement for her and looked at many options before selecting the program. From the onset, we felt that all the folks at Y.A.L.E. understood exactly what her needs were and how to help her. Every teacher and assistant she had at Medford was wonderful. She was able to transition into a classroom environment there, only because of the quality support she received.

Ramya and Vincent L.

Parents

“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 the first time our son has “friends” and even a “best friend”.”

Jordan

Former student

“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 Society. I just made Honor Roll for the first marking period of this year, and next fall I plan to attend Rutgers University for political science, history, and communications. I really wanted to thank everyone that helped me get ready for this! I would never be in the position I am now without all the help, support, and tough love I received at Y.A.L.E. School. Thank you so much.”
