Teachers, instructors, psychologists, speech and language therapist  ...   Plans may cover such areas as behaviour, independent living skills, reading, maths, work experience and language skills.. Parents are invited to put forward their own suggestions and to consider ways in which they can support the student's development.. Educator Support Team.. The Educator Support Team initiative was implemented in September 2008.. The EST is any relevant group of people who meet to discuss the needs of a particular student.. The EST group shares ideas, plans and co-ordinates interventions in an attempt to cater for the student's individual needs.. The EST can also offer support to a teacher in their efforts to meet the targets set out in a student's Individual Education Plan.. An IEP is prepared and the student's responses to the interventions are monitored.. Review meetings are scheduled for the weeks that follow to determine the student's progress and develop new strategies to support them.. Keeping parents informed of the support being offered to their child is key to the whole process working.. Liaison between home and school ensures that every student receives the level of support necessary for his or her success.. Three staff on campus act as co-ordinators for the EST and liaise with one another, receive referrals and arrange meetings.. Further information on EST:.. EST - Questions and Answers..

Criteria for Enrolment.. Saint Augustine's is a school for children up to 18 years old who have special education needs.. Students who attend Saint Augustine's usually have a mild intellectual disability and often their basic skills in reading, writing and maths are delayed.. Saint Augustine's is not a therapeutic school for children with significant behavioural difficulties, although we do support a number of young people who experience some behavioural difficulties, secondary to their learning difficulties.. The school has approximately 155 students in the primary and post-primary departments.. Referral.. Anyone can refer a child to Saint Augustine's, although it is expected that parents/guardians will always be consulted.. Sometimes parents make the referral themselves, sometimes School Principals, Social Workers or Psychologists make the referral.. The person making the referral simply writes to or phones, the Programme Manager or Principal of Saint Augustine's, asking to refer the child and an information pack and application forms will be sent out.. Visits to Saint Augustine's.. Parents/guardians may visit the school during school hours by arrangement.. This helps you decide if you wish to refer your child.. On this visit you will usually have an opportunity to meet the School Principal and to see the programmes and facilities on offer at the school.. Decision re.. Assessment.. Next, Saint Augustine's School will collect information about the referred child.. We try to get the following reports if available; School Report, Psychological Report, Social Work Report, Speech Therapy Report.. When this information is gathered the Assessment Team reviews it.. The Assessment Team tries to decide if the staff at Saint Augustine's School could best meet the referred child's needs.. If the answer is yes, the next step is assessment.. If the answer is no, the parents/guardians and the person who made the referral will  ...   for assessment is set when the child and parents come to Saint Augustine's.. If the child or parents have not previously visited Saint Augustine's, this is an opportunity for them to be shown around and meet with the School Principal.. It is also the time when the Psychologist can do some in-depth assessment of your child.. This might include an IQ Test, reading, writing, spelling and maths activities.. IQ Tests include such things as making puzzles, answering questions and drawing shapes.. Psychologists are specially trained to put children at ease and help them relax.. The Psychologist will chat to your child about his/her experience of school, likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests.. When a child is working with the Psychologist, the parents meet with a Social Worker and discuss the history of the child's needs and abilities in the context of the whole family.. Enrolment.. After the assessment the team prepare reports for the Enrolment Committee.. At the next meeting of the Enrolment Committee your child's needs are discussed and the Psychologist and Social Worker present their reports.. Usually a decision is then made about whether to offer a place.. Parents (and the referring agency, if appropriate) are informed of this decision in writing.. The Enrolment Committee usually meets every month.. Approval for transport and other supports.. If your child has been accepted by the Enrolment Committee, the School Principal then writes to the National Council for Special Education asking it to approve transport arrangements and other appropriate supports.. This process may take a number of weeks.. Start Date.. As soon as this approval is received a starting date can be set and parents receive details of school uniform/rules/application forms etc.. This whole process can take anything from a few weeks to a number of months.. If you have any queries/concerns about a child's application, you can contact the School Principal or Programme Manager..
