Happy Anniversary to Us!

We're taking a break from educational and related content to wish ourselves a Happy Third Anniversary! It has been three years since our team of clinicians and administrators, most of whom had formerly been associated with the All Kinds of Minds Institute, came together under the leadership of Dr. Paul Yellin to create The Yellin Center for Student Success.

Since that time, we have worked with almost 1,000 students from pre-K through adult, from right here in the New York area, as well as from across the country and around the globe. We have helped these students and their families understand their learning profiles and have provided them with strategies to help them in school, at home, and in life.

We have worked with numerous schools and consulted with school districts from all over the U.S., several of which have sent teams of teachers and staff to our offices to observe student evaluations and learn from our team. Our clinicians have attended numerous conferences and presented at programs as diverse as the NY Dyslexia Association and the Practicing Law Institute.

But in addition to our extensive professional acomplishments, we have had some important personal milestones as well, and we thought this would be a good time to share them with our readers. Since the Yellin Center began on April 1, 2007, our team has :
  • Celebrated one marriage and one engagement (with an October, 2010 wedding date);
  • Welcomed two babies;
  • Started graduate school in psychology (actually, this applies to two of our administrative staff!)
  • Written a book (on transition from high school, due out this summer);
  • Become fans of Central Michigan football and its quarterback (the brother of one of our clinicians) who is highly rated in the upcoming NFL draft; and
  • Supported a new teacher who graduates from Harvard with a Masters of Education in Teaching and Curriculum this May.
It's been a terrific three years and we look forward to many more. We are grateful for the support and enthusiasm of the students, families, and schools with which we have worked. And we know we are extraordinarily fortunate to have the terrific team of gifted professionals and administrators that help us do our important work!
