Admissions and Assessment
When considering whether Meath School could potentially meet your child’s needs, we welcome and encourage parents and guardians to contact us to book a tour around our school.
This will give you the opportunity to discuss your child’s individual needs as well as see teaching and learning in action, with examples of the whole school approaches.
To consider children for admission, we evaluate whether developmental speech and/or language disorder is the primary barrier to learning. We can also support children with high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (also known as Asperger’s Syndrome) who present with associated language and communication difficulties and would benefit from our group learning environment. Unfortunately we are unable to provide the right support for children whose primary barrier to learning is Autism Spectrum Disorder or Social Communication Disorder.
Before being offered a place at Meath School, we consider whether we can meet the full range of the child’s needs. All children will undergo a thorough two day assessment at I CAN's assessment centre. This will provide a detailed understanding of the child’s needs and the kind of provision that is right for them.
Please note there is a fee attached to the assessment and this can be carried out at the request of the Local Authority or parents/guardians.
