“I knew I had struck gold after visiting with the staff of the Y.A.L.E. Medford campus. I encountered teaching professionals who not only 'got' my son but also appreciated the nuances and attributes that make him who he is. Three years later, I have not received one frantic phone call and our son has grown from a non-reader into a child with a favorite author." — Monica and David S.
The Y.A.L.E. School’s Medford campus in central Burlington County off Route 70, serves students 5 to 14 years of age with social learning disabilities such as Asperger’s disorder (Asperger’s syndrome), high-functioning autism, and ADHD. The program provides a full day of instruction with an extended school year program available. Student-teacher ratios are low, giving our teachers and staff the time and structure needed for individualized instruction. Our Medford campus operates classrooms in two public school buildings in Medford, allowing students the opportunity to interact with typical peers.
Because many students with Asperger’s struggle with writing, reading comprehension, and pragmatics of language, instruction focuses on developing critical thinking and reasoning skills.
To help with reading and writing, each student uses a personal AlphaSmart NEO word processor. Most students at our Medford campus are on grade level—some are gifted—but many have learning disabilities associated with Asperger’s.
The admissions coordinator at each campus makes individual admissions decisions, but the application and referral process follows a standard multi-step process. Click here to learn more about our admissions process.
