Children with Special Educational Needs: Information Booklet for Parents

Westmeath County Childcare Committee (WCCC) welcome the publication of a guide detailing the full range of educational supports available to children with special needs. The new booklet published by the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) allows parents to access a range of important information in one document. The document provides practical answers to questions parents ask on a daily basis about the educational options and supports available for their child with special educational needs. Spanning the age range from early childhood to post primary education, the document includes accessible information regarding supports available, how special education needs are assessed, individual education plans, benefits and allowances and contact details for a range of disability organisations.
