At the YAI Network, we believe that, no matter our age or ability, continuing to learn and grow throughout our lives is essential for leading a vibrant, productive life.
All children need nurturing in order to learn and grow. Children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities need something extra — special, individualized assistance to achieve their own and their families’ dreams.
Developed by the YAI Network in response to request of families of young children, Manhattan Star Academy is the newest member to our network. The school builds on each child's strengths and abilities in a supportive learning environment with access to Central Park and the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
To learn more about Manhattan Star Academy, contact YAI LINK, our information and referral service, at 212.273.6182. Our information and referral specialists will happily assist you!
The YAI Network offers a variety of Day Services options for adults with developmental disabilities, each with a focus on skill-building, community integration, social skills, volunteerism, creativity and cultivating each person's talents and interests. Many of our programs also offer a pre-vocational element to ready people to enter employment training programs or a work setting. Day Services are available throughout New York City, Long Island and Westchester County. Check out a gallery of art by participants in our Greenwich Village location.
