ASD Class Enrolment

Our Lady of Lourdes is currently drafting a new enrolment policy for our ASD Class, to reflect Dept. of Education Guidelines. This policy has been submitted to our Patron for approval and will be posted here in September.

In general the criteria for making an application to our ASD class are in line with Dept. criteria i.e. The special class provides an education exclusively for students with a diagnosis of ASD. Parents must provide a diagnostic report prepared by a Psychologist, Psychiatrist or Multi-Disciplinary team, within 2 years of application, that has assessed and classified the child as having autism or autism spectrum disorder using the DSM-V or ICD 10. The report must include a recommendation that a special class placement in a mainstream school is both necessary and suitable for the child, due to the presence of complex learning needs. The school/SENO may refuse admission to this class, where the student concerned does not have the specified category of special educational needs provided for in this class
