  • A Message to Our Parents

    Supporting children to engage in appropriate educational activities in a safe manner is our utmost focus during these current times. The LIU Special Education Centers; Franklin Learning Center, Paradise Center, York Learning Center are opening this month for face to face instruction. However, knowing that this may not be appropriate or comfortable for some students or families, the LIU is committed to working with individual student teams to develop an educational plan and setting that is appropriate. This could mean a virtual education or hybrid type of educational setting for your child. Please contact your child’s program supervisor or the LIU Special Education Director if you have any questions.
