Grades 1 – 12 Programs

Y.A.L.E. Philadelphia prepares students for the years ahead!

Transitions occur naturally during the school years as students progress from the elementary grades to middle school and into high school. But at Y.A.L.E. School Philadelphia, we believe that learning at every developmental stage must be mindfully designed to help students build the skills they will need over a lifetime.

Having this mindset of planning for the future also allows us to guide parents through this process, celebrating both small triumphs and significant leaps, as well as identifying important skills that need to be encouraged and strengthened. As partners in education, we offer a comprehensive approach that supports and nurtures a student’s overall growth and development with family involvement so that skills are learned systematically in the special education setting, and then generalized to the home and community to help the IEP team measure progress towards future goals.

Y.A.L.E. School Supports Parents

Y.A.L.E. School Philadelphia fosters a culture that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of students. We also value parents as our partners and provide opportunities to support them as well.

Throughout the school year, we invite parents to participate in parent workshops and information sessions on important topics involving a range of concerns and interests, such as social emotional development, steps toward independence, nutrition, and preparing for employment and community participation. Many are done virtually and recorded so that parents may access them at any time. See below for links to presentations from the current school year.
