St Teresa's Special School

Creagh Road, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway.

St Teresa's Special School Curriculum

The children have the opportunity to experience all subjects in the National primary curriculum with the exception of Irish.

Pupils are supported in their learning through the use of Lámh, PECs, TEACCH, Social stories. We encourage the pupils to participate as independently as possible.

There are Individuas Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy programmes for the children throughout the day.

There is a Special emphasis on developing the independence of each child within their own ability. Therefore there is a focus placed on functional activities through the Social personal and health education programme.

Individual educational plans are drawn up for all pupils by the teaching staff in consultation with parents and the multi-disciplinary teams. These plans highlight personal and learning goals for the child for set periods of time.
