When you are told that your child has special needs, one of the challenges is finding out what is available to help your child and your family, what you and your child’s rights are and how do you access financial and educational supports. Parents sometimes miss out on supports for their child and family because they did not know where to look, what to look for or do not have access to professionals who have the information.

Our Get The Facts pages are packed full of useful information for parents of children with special needs and disabilities in Ireland and is a section that we hope to keep expanding on to meet the needs of parents. A lot of parents learn about how ‘The System’ works from other parents, but it is also important that this information is based on facts.

Take your time to browse through the different sections and hopefully, your questions will be answered.
