Special Education and Pupil Services
The AIU Special Education and Pupil Services Division's programs and services are available to the 42 school districts in Allegheny County and support districts in meeting the changing needs of their students with disabilities. The special education staff includes supervisors, psychologists, teachers, clinicians, paraprofessionals and others who provide educational services tailored to match district requests. School districts contracting with the division 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 who 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 schools 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.
