We focus on the development of communication, social skills and flexibility of thought while catering to the sensory needs of the child. Seolta consists of two ASD pre-school classes. Each class is attended by two S.N.A.’s and one Teacher. There are six pupils in each class. The pupils are mainly supported by the Early Intervention Services H.S.E and St. Michael’s House Services.
Children are awarded places on a first come first served basis and a waiting list is compiled when both classrooms are full. The DES (transport section) funds the transportation of children with Autism who live outside the area to our school. An escort travels with the children in the bus and delivers the children safely to and from home. The application for transport is made through the school.
