Special Education and Support Services
The AIU Special Education Department's programs and services are available to the 42 school districts in Allegheny County. These programs and services support districts in meeting the changing needs of their students with disabilities. The special education staff includes Special Education Supervisors, psychologists, teachers, clinicians and paraprofessionals who provide educational services tailored to match district requests. School districts contracting with the Special Education Department for direct program operation receive administration and supervision as part of the service package.
The Special Education Department can provide programs and/or services for students in your district that require Autistic Support, Emotional Support, Learning Support, Life Skills Support, Multi-disabilities Support and Physical Support.
For those students whose educational needs require Center-based services, the AIU offers the Mon Valley School (in the Southern Region), The Pathfinder School (in the Southwestern Region) and Sunrise School (in the Southeastern Region). Our centers are dedicated to providing a safe, secure, yet challenging environment that facilitates the development of critical skills and the academic, social and vocational development that support successful school to adult life transition.
