Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell, has welcomed the allocation of funding to Coláiste Choilm for the development of an ASD Unit Classroom from the Department of Education and Skills.
“I am glad to see that the Department of Education and Skills is providing funding to Coláiste Choilm for an ASD Unit Classroom. I would like to compliment the school authorities on what was, without doubt, a considerable amount of work which they had to undertake to achieve this result. Facilities such as ASD Units are essential in supporting children with autism throughout their time in education. Making sure that students who require extra supports and assistance receive them must be a priority for teachers, schools and the Government. Providing the necessary resources is the only way to guarantee that all children get the greatest benefit from our education system.”
“With the youngest population in the State, Dublin Fingal is home to a large number of families with children in full-time education. The provision of educational supports to schools throughout the constituency is of the utmost importance in order to ensure our children receive a high-quality education in an environment which is conducive to their learning. I will continue to support all schools in the constituency in relation to their future development and upkeep.”
