Community School Age Services
The Community School Age Service is a multi-disciplinary service supporting children from 6 to 18 years with an intellectual disability who attend mainstream primary and secondary schools. Some of the children supported attend special classes while others attend regular classes with some additional supports such as Learning Support Teaching, Resource Teaching and/ or a Special Needs Assistant. A small number of children are educated at home.
Currently there are two Community School Age Teams in County Galway, one based in Galway City and the other based in Ballinasloe. Work is on-going as part of the National Progressing Children’s Disability Services Framework in preparation for the re-alignment of school age multidisciplinary supports. The plan is that the multidisciplinary services to children of school age will be delivered through four teams in an inter-agency model comprising staff from Brothers of Charity Services, Ability West, Enable Ireland and the HSE.
