The Shine Early Learning Unit operates under a Group Tuition Scheme with Department of Special Education as part of the Home Tuition Scheme. Any child attending the Shine Early Education Unit must first qualify under the Home Tuition Grant Scheme. Please contact us and we will explain the application process to you.
Grace O’Callaghan (ELU Manager) outlines the teaching approaches used at the Shine Early Learning Unit:
“At the Shine Early Learning Unit we aim to provide a learning model that allows each child to develop to his or her full potential. The teaching method is an eclectic model. Our focus is on communication and academic skill as well as play, self management and life skills. This is supported by evidence based autism specific teaching methodologies such as ABA, PECS and Teacch. We also utilise lamh, Aistear and social stories. Each child’s individual needs and requirements are evaluated when deciding on their individual learning approach. The teaching model is broad based and relevant and it incorporates all areas of the child’s wellbeing including physical and emotional development.”
