Valley Forge Educational Services (VFES) is an extremely important player in the field of specialized educational solutions for students, parents, educational and mental health professionals, and education-based organizations. It has over 50 years of experience in the special education arena and is know for its expertise in learning solutions for children and families who experience Autism Spectrum Disorders, neurological impairments, emotional overlays, and learning disabilities.

I find VFES to be an able and knowledgeable resource and provider of services through its Vanguard School, Luma Center, and Summer Matters programs and services. It also provides opportune professional development and research that is current and valuable to the education community at large.

When I look to share my philanthropic dollars, I always check in to see what VFES' initiatives are and how they are performing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How well it provides professional development and direct services to families and children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Suggest expanding the Board of Trustees to ensure that there is a wide view experience base on how best to grow the organization from a local operation to a regional and eventually a national organization.
