The National Council for Special Education (NCSE)
The National Council for Special Education (NCSE) was set up to improve the delivery of education services to persons with special educational needs arising from disabilities with particular emphasis on children. The Council was first established as an independent statutory body by order of the Minister for Education and Science in December 2003.

A complete guide to supporting special educational needs in Ireland, combining specialist assistance across a wide range of needs with theoretical approaches and perspectives from practice.

The Department of Education is undertaking a review of the Education for Persons with Special Educational Needs (EPSEN) Act 2004.

Bill entitled an Act to provide, having regard to the common good, for each of the following, namely, to make further provision for the education of people with disabilities, to provide that people with disabilities shall have the same right to avail of, and benefit from, appropriate education as do their peers who do not have disabilities.....

From a teaching perspective, never approach a student with any preconceived notions as to their level of ability. Whether that child/young adult, is neurotypical or disabled, we are all intellectually different. Let’s not judge anyone by the way they appear, looks are deceiving.

The National Council for Special Education (NCSE) supports an inclusive education system that enables children and adults with special educational needs to achieve their potential. One of our key functions is to provide the Minister for Education and Skills with expert, independent, evidence-informed policy advice on special education for children and adults. In 2012, we were requested to provide policy advice on how students with special educational needs should, in the future, be supported in schools.
