Review for Valley Forge Specialized Educational Services Corporation, Paoli, PA, USA
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.
