Achieve ABA school for children with autism in Doghnamede closes July 29, 2011

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Economy, Education, Irish Politics, The Left.

We’ve been asked to mention the Achieve ABA school in Doghnamede, which caters specifically for children with autism, which is closing due to no continuation of funding from the Department of Education.

Parents banded together and used home tuition payments from the Department as well as any other funding they could raise in order to keep the school going, but the Department has now refused them any further payments. Given that this is forcing the children back into a system which is itself now suffering grievous cuts in terms of SNAs and so on it’s unfortunately all too easy to see what way the Dept. of Education is thinking about this.

The campaign continues with efforts to lobby Enda Kenny Letter to An Taoiseach 26 July 2011 (F). Grim reading, not least since it gives a sense of how the crisis is impacting, and also how Fine Gael are dealing with previously solid commitments.

There’s more on the issue here…
