Learning Support

 


Learning Support:

 

The Educational Support Team at Muine Bheag Vocational School coordinates access to learning support and resource teaching classes for students with a formal diagnosis of a special educational need, or those requiring support in the areas of literacy and/or numeracy.

A comprehensive assessment and planning structure is in place to ensure that each student receives the most appropriate support and students and parents/guardians are included in the planning process at all times. An ASD support class offers specialised educational support to six students who have been diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum.

The Special Educational Needs Coordinator will assist in making applications for Reasonable Accommodations for the State Examinations (RACE) or referring students to outside professionals such as educational psychology.
