Building Blocks School Support Service provides advice and support to children with a diagnosis of Autism attending mainstream Primary and Secondary Schools in Cork City and surrounds. The service has been in operation for the past nine years, and in that time in excess of 150 students have benefitted and advanced as a result.
The PALS Programme has been designed and operated by the Shine Centre for the past four years. This programme, the first of it’s kind, places equal emphasis on personal and emotional self management skills, self esteem and social skill development.
The Shine Early Education Unit is funded under a direct payment agreement between the Department of Special Education and Shine. Any child attending the Shine Early Education Unit must first qualify under the Home Tuition Grant Scheme.
When your child receives a diagnosis of autism it can be a very traumatic time for the whole family. Many parents are caught up in the emotion of the diagnosis which is totally understandable as they come to grips with their new situation.
