Special Education Centers
The Mon Valley School, The Pathfinder School and Sunrise School are dedicated to providing a safe, secure, yet challenging environment that facilitates the development of critical skills that support successful school to adult life transition. Recognizing that diversity and individuality enhance and improve the education of all learners, the intended outcome of the education process is to assist students in becoming functional and independent members of their local communities. Through the Special Education Centers, the AIU will plant the seeds of inclusion, cultivate the growth process with students and families and nurture continued positive experience in the work place and community.
Each Special Education Center is focused on providing services in a manner that is responsive to a broad spectrum of customer needs. There is a commitment to flexibility and openness to implementing programs that meet these needs to link diverse segments of the community. These beliefs facilitate quality services for students and their families.
The Special Education Centers are dedicated to the academic, social, and vocational development of students with disabilities. Programs are designed to meet each student's unique needs through individualized and adapted curriculum, community partnerships and communications training. All students will have the opportunity to acquire skills that will enable them to function appropriately in the community.
