The Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children in Oakland, Pa., is celebrating its 125th birthday, having been chartered on Jan. 8, 1887. The school was first created to serve only students with visual impairments, but it has since expanded its mission to include those who have visual impairments along with other special needs. Programs include early-intervention services, plus transition services for older students, and educators from the school travel to other campuses to provide outreach services as well.
