  • A Message to Our Parents

    “Supporting your children is of the utmost importance to us. Starting the week of March 23rd, your child’s teacher, itinerant teacher and/ or therapist will be contacting you and your child to touch base. If the school closure period is extended, the professionals with whom your child works are preparing to offer some type of remote learning opportunities.”

Congratulations Graduates

  • A message from LIU Executive Director Dr. Jeff West:

    As you know, we are not able to have our typical graduation ceremonies this year due to COVID-19. However, graduates were honored in a different way. Depending on the program, students were honored in such events as Live video presentations, Drive by diploma “pick ups” or Door to door honors (keeping social distance). Please take a moment to access the link below to access a video that honors some of those students who have graduated this year from LIU programs. We continue to be proud of the accomplishments of these students who put forth hard work and efforts to accomplish so much.

    Thank you all for your support in our work that is so meaningful to these students.
