Gaeloideachas’ vision is that high-quality Irish-medium immersion education should be available to every parent and guardian who would choose it for their child. We support naíonraí and Irish-medium primary and post-primary schools in their work to be fully inclusive and to cater for all children, no matter what their educational needs might be.
Gaeloideachas has developed a range of aids and resources to support children with special educational needs, their parents, and their teachers in partnership with AsIAm and Middletown Centre for Autism. You can find all of these resources and more to support children with special educational needs on www.gaeloideachas.ie. Here are a few examples:
You can find all resources on special educational needs in the library on the Gaeloideachas website.
Gaeloideachas, in partnership with COGG, will be holding a Conference on Special Educational Needs in the Mullingar Park Hotel, Co. Westmeath, on 24 November. A wide range of workshops will take place for primary and secondary teachers and principals alike. All information available at gaeloideachas.ie/comhdhail-rso
Gaeloideachas has a dedicated email list for parents, as well as a newsletter on special educational needs. If you would like to receive further information, news, and resources, register here.
