The National Council for Special Education (NCSE)
The NCSE is a statutory body established under the Education for Persons with Special Educational Needs Act 2004. Since our establishment, we have concentrated on developing an organisation which provides a timely and efficient service to schools in sanctioning teaching and Special Needs Assistant (SNA) resources to support children with special educational needs.
We have also embarked on a wide-ranging programme of research on the provision of special education which will help us formulate policy advice to the Minister for Education and Skills.
The aim of our website is to provide some introductory information about the work of the Council. We hope the website becomes a useful resource for parents, teachers, health and education professionals and policy makers interested in our work. We would welcome your comments on our work.
We also provide links to other websites with information on Special Education which we hope you will also find helpful.
Should you wish to print any information from our website, please use the printer friendly link at the end of each page.
