She is the co-author of the award winning book Life After High School: A Guide for Students with Disabilities and Their Families (Jessica Kingsley Publishers) and a frequent speaker on issues relating to transition from high school for students with learning and other challenges. Prior to joining The Yellin Center, Mrs. Yellin was the founder and Executive Director of the nonprofit Center for Learning Differences, an organization which has provided information and resources to thousands of families and professionals. She also created its signature program, Life After High School, which brought together hundreds of students, parents, and counselors with representatives of colleges and post-secondary programs that offer supports for students who struggle with learning issues.

Mrs. Yellin has been a practicing New York attorney for over 25 years and worked as a commercial attorney in several New York area firms until her experiences with one of her own sons led her to become involved in legal issues related to special education. In her role at The Yellin Center, Mrs. Yellin works with families to obtain school services and select appropriate school settings. In addition, she provides college counseling and transition guidance for students and parents, helping students who struggle with learning and related issues as they apply to college or seek other post-secondary education.
