“All staff is highly trained to handle situations that may arise in the classroom setting. We like the low teacher/student ratio and how the students are able to work at their own pace and excel where they are gifted. Our son is free to be who he is at Y.A.L.E. He does not feel judged. He has matured so much and has come so far!” — Judy D.
The Y.A.L.E. School’s Northfield campus is located in Atlantic County, just west of Atlantic City. The program serves students 5 to 21 years of age with one or a combination of emotional, behavioral, social, or learning disabilities. Some students may have a clinical diagnosis of anxiety disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (A.D.H.D.), mood, personality, obsessive-compulsive, or oppositional defiant disorders, and/or specific learning disabilities. Most struggle with effective relationships with peers and adults.
The Northfield campus offers academic instruction that stresses applied behavior analysis (ABA). Activities focus on coordination of community–based mental health services and supports for both students and families.
Classrooms feature state-of-the art educational technology, including computers and specialized software for each student. Transition planning and transition services—including mentoring, job skills training, and practical experience in real world situations— are offered to older students as they prepare for life after graduation.
The admissions coordinator at each campus makes individual admissions decisions, but the referral and application process follows a standard multi-step process. Click here to learn more about our admissions process.
