About Arbor Bay School


For more than 12 years, Arbor Bay School has increased opportunities for children in Pre-K-8th grade with mild to moderate learning differences to achieve academic and social success. We achieve this through highly individualized and specialized instruction by credentialed Special Education teachers, combined with speech and occupational therapy in a small classroom environment. Arbor Bay School's solid history is defined by the students who have excelled due to this results-driven methodology.

Arbor Bay School was founded in 2003 by Pamela Colston Joy, the Founder and CEO of Associated Learning & Language Specialists, Inc (ALLS), Since 1980, ALLS has been providing multidisciplinary, clinical and educational support for language and learning needs for children and adults. ALLS provides individual and group therapy in the areas of Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Behavior Therapy.

Happy Parents

My younger sister has come such a long way since she started Arbor Bay School. Before she started ABS, she was barely talking; it took quite an effort to get her to talk. Now, it is the exact opposite. It takes effort to stop her from talking, and she talks with real knowledge. My sister shows us so many reasons to be proud of her every day. I love her and am truly amazed at how far she has come with ABS.


What I appreciate most is that the Arbor Bay School teachers and therapists know how to bring out the best in our children, build their self-esteem, and provide a platform for each student to be a model to others of his or her strengths. Furthermore, with the low student/teacher ratio, our children receive the individualized attention and instruction they deserve, resulting in progress.

My son is currently in the eighth grade at Arbor Bay School. He started at ABS in second grade. Until he started ABS, he demonstrated poor impulse control and was often fidgety and even disruptive in class. He had great difficulty with focus and attention and was not engaging in the learning process or even with his peers. Fortunately, we discovered Arbor Bay School.
