COVID-19 Message

  • 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.

    Dr. Lynn Murphy, Director of Special Education, LIU 12

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.
