Soon thereafter, Gayle assumed the role of Admissions Coordinator at the League School of Greater Boston—a private school specializing in educating students with autism. Reviewing new applicants, actualizing supports for accepted students, and mediating between parents and faculty. Gayle saw first-hand how finding the right fit made all the difference in both learning outcomes and happiness.
Gayle’s passion for advocating for students led her to the Milford Public Schools. As the Team Chairperson for the district, she coordinated IEPs, progress reports, evaluations, and summer services for all special education students. Additionally, Gayle oversaw and facilitated all initial, annual, and reevaluation team meetings. She also regularly met with content learning teachers to ensure curricula were modified for the needs of each student. Her role also had her train and manage other school professionals in IEP implementation, as well as in the principles of applied behavior analysis, behavior reduction, and student management.
Now, as the Director of Educational Advocacy at Vested Academics, Gayle offers her clients a combination of expertise, warmth, and a deep understanding of how the special education process actually works, both in the public and private school settings. A skilled mediator and seasoned advocate, she regularly helps parents understand their rights, communicate with teachers, schools, and administrators, and solidify better educations for their children.
