Harry H. Gordon School. The Harry H. Gordon school (a YAI Network program) in The Bronx is one of the best experiences we’ve had since The Norrin’s diagnosis. Whenever I walk in the building, I feel like I’m home. Harry H. Gordon provides EI and CPSE center based programs in addtion to speech, OT and PT. The entire staff is nurturing, supportive and caring. The kids have fun, they go out into the community and the community of Little Italy welcomes them. My son wouldn’t be where he is today, if not for the Harry H. Gordon school. For more information/admissions process please call (718) 367-5917.
