Literacy & Learning Development Center


Literacy & Learning Development Center

The Literacy and Learning Development Centers are operated by the Department of Special Education and Literacy Graduate Program at LIU Post and LIU Brentwood. The Centers provide strategic learning skills to selected clients in the local community and serve as a supervised training facility for our graduate student interns.

Professional Staff

The Centers are staffed by graduate student interns who are in the process of completing a Master's degree in either Literacy or Special Education. Each clinician is closely supervised by professors who are faculty members of the department.


Students in grades two through six who have marked discrepancy between their potential and their actual achievement will be considered as applicants for various programs. Space may be limited.
