Sacred Heart Junior National School, Tallaght, Dublin

Autism Spectrum Disorder Unit

The decision to provide two junior special classes for children with a definite diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder in Croí Ró Naofa Sóisearach was taken by the Board of Management of the school in conjunction with the principal and the staff in February 2013.

The decision was taken with a view to providing an education in a mainstream setting for children who have an ASD diagnosis, who fulfil the enrolment criteria and for whom a place may be made available. Pupils in the ASD classes will be integrated with mainstream school activities in our school. We recognise and value the role of parents/guardians as the primary educators of their children.
