The Institute for the Redesign of Learning (IRL) is a multi-service, community based Special Education, mental health, job development, and training facility for special needs children, students, and adults.

IRL began in 1974 when its founder, Nancy J. Lavelle, Ph.D., created the Almansor Education Center located in a church on Almansor Street in Alhambra, California. With a belief that every student has the ability to “take charge” of their own learning process, Dr. Lavelle established a unique environment, individualized curriculum, and created appropriate support and enrichment services designed to turn student and client learning failures into learning successes.

Now over forty years later, the Institute for the Redesign of Learning offers six programs designed to provide a continuum of care for individuals with Special Needs, ages infants through adults, serving children, students, and clients throughout the greater Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley communities. These programs include: Almansor Early Childhood Education Services, Almansor Community Outreach Services, Almansor Academy (a Non-Public Special Education Day School), Almansor Mental Health Services, Almansor Transition and Adult Services/Supported Employment Services, and Westmoreland Academy (a Non-Public Special Education Day School for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders).
