Ireland & Ghana Class

Ireland class and Ghana class are our special classes for children with a definite diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The decision to open these classes in Lucan East Educate Together National School was taken by the Board of Management of the school in conjunction with the Principal and Staff in October 2012.

The decision was taken with a view to provide an education in a mainstream setting for children who have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, who fulfil the enrolment criteria and for whom a place may be made available.

The decision to provide an ASD class in our school was taken primarily to cater for children resident in Lucan Co. Dublin (“the Catchment Area”). We have 6 children in Ireland class, 1st class and 6 children in Ghana class, junior infants. These students will be integrated with mainstream school activities in our school.
