SESS-Supported Middletown Courses

Middletown Centre for Autism is a North–South educational initiative which was established in 2007 with funding provided by the Department of Education (DE), Northern Ireland and the Department of Education and Skills (DES), Ireland.

Based in Middletown, Co. Armagh, the purpose of the centre is to support the promotion of excellence in the development and co-ordination of education services to children and young people with Autism.

Special Education Support Service (SESS) will facilitate teachers from Ireland working with pupils with Autism in accessing specific courses through the provision of travel and subsistence costs. In addition, substitute cover may be available for teachers with primary responsibility for children with Autis and where it is deemed essential by the Principal.
