You are right, as a parent who has set up and afterschool club in Mayo and a lecturer who was privileged to teach young Adults with additional needs I agree. Contact the HSE in your area and or They should be able to help. Let me know how it goes as I will come accross this in my own area soon I am sure.

Good luck, Frances

I am looking for a good after school programme for my son age 10 who has special needs (down syndrome) but can find nothing in the BLACKROCK area (dublin). We did have au pairs for the past few years but as he is getting bigger I feel he needs the company of other children and not an au pair. A structure in his day with activity. Can anyone suggest any suitable afterschool care/programme in South County Dublin.
