What We Do

At Clairview School, dedicated professionals educate more than 100 students, ages 5-21, all of whom have different needs, abilities, and interests.  Three onsite Early Intervention classrooms and one Head Start classroom serve children under the age of 5.  School-age classrooms include Emotional Support, Autistic Support, Multiple Disabilities Support, and Life Skills Support.

Multi-Disciplinary Evaluation (MDE) team members work together to develop strength-based Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).  These documents guide teachers, parents, and therapists through each student's educational programming and post-secondary transition planning.  The Westmoreland Intermediate Unit employs speech therapists, occupational and physical therapists, and a vision therapist, all of whom have offices at Clairview.  In addition, Clairview employs two full-time nurses, a guidance counselor, Personal Care Assistants, and a school psychologist.

Teachers focus lessons on academic, social, behavior, and life skills.  Community-based instruction and vocational training are important parts of Clairview's goals.  Students also have opportunities to practice life skills including budgeting, cleaning, and meal preparation.
