Autism Classes

This September, Scoil Fhionáin welcomes a second Autism Class in the school. The classes caters for six pupils each on the Autism spectrum and is currently set up in spare classrooms. We are thrilled to have this as a new addition to our school and we will be extending our ASD facilities with an extension of a new building to commence in January 2024.

We currently have two full classes enrolled working with Mrs. Walsh, Ms O’Shea and our fantastic SNAs Mary, Maria and Norma.

The fundamental function of our Autism classes is inclusion. The ethos and spirit of these classes has well and truly been adopted by the whole school and fostered by the school community. We aim to offer an Autism specific learning environment within a mainstream school. This type of educational setting facilitates optimum inclusion as part of the school community with access to mainstream activities as appropriate.
