Autism Classes Tarmon
On the 3rd November 2014 we established our first Autism Early |ntervention Class for pre-school children. The pupil : teacher ratio in the class is 6:1 with two SNAs caring for the children's needs. A second class was established in 2015 and on the 9th January 2017 our third A.S.D class opened. Since then 3 further AS classes have opened and we now have 2 Early Intervention and 4 School Age Classes.
It is widely accepted that Early Intervention is hugely beneficial for children with Autism. Our children develop together socially and academically in a safe and inclusive educational environment, under the professional guidance of the staff. Our pupils benefit from the support of outside agencies who visit the school regularly, providing O.T, Speech and Language and other therapies and services.
The children in these classes are making great progress, thanks to our wonderful pupils and the pioneering work of the staff and B.O.M not to mention the enthusiastic support we received from all the parents and the local community.
All of our pupils have access to the full Primary School Curriculum as we constantly strive for each child to achieve his/her maximum potential. We work closely with the parents to attain these goals.
The children in our Autism classes are invited to avail of the School Transport Scheme provided by the Department of Education and Skills.
