Opening of Schools and Calculated Grades: Statements
Chris Andrews (Dublin Bay South, Sinn Fein)
Schools will be seeking to remediate classrooms and to construct different extensions to classrooms and buildings to ensure that they open again and that the children can return. Can the provision of autism classes be included in those remediation works so children with autism can get back to school as well? There is only one autism class in the postal codes of Dublin 2, Dublin 4, Dublin 6 and Dublin 6W. It is important for the parents that children have classes to which they can return. If schools were able to include the development of classes for children with autism in the remediation works it would be greatly beneficial for the parents of those children.
