The YES (Yeshiva Extension and Support) centre is a stand-alone therapy centre offering support to Yeshiva College students and students from outside of our school. The YES centre offers five different therapies:
Speech and language therapy
The YES centre is home to twelve highly skilled, dedicated and loving therapists who dedicate their time to ensure the growth and support of the children who attend. Each therapy has its own designated room with top of the range equipment.
Therapies can take place during the school day, which is very beneficial for parents and children.
We take a trans-therapeutic approach here, meaning that we go beyond the therapies the child may need and ensure that these methods are carried through to the classroom, the home and the entire school environment.
The YES centre offers assessments to children of all ages, while our attendees range in age from 18 months – 18 years. During this complex time of Covid-19, the YES centre has continued to keep its doors open to assist children, with very strict protocols in place.
