Early Intervention Classes for Autistic Children

Early Intervention Classes for Autistic Children: Towards a coherent, inclusive system is a report that was published earlier this week by the Inspectorate from the Department of Education. The report published on July 8th outlines the findings of inspections conducted across 15 early intervention classes for Autistic pre-school children between September and December 2023. Early Intervention Classes were started in 2006 and exist within mainstream primary schools and special schools, they established by the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) in response to the identified need of the community. The report shows the findings of these inspections as well as some recommendations to improve access to the pre-school for Autistic children.
