SESS-Supported Middletown Courses

Middletown Centre for Autism is a North–South educational initiative and 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 autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs).

Special Education Support Service (SESS) will facilitate teachers from the Republic of Ireland working with pupils with ASDs 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 ASD and where it is deemed essential by the Principal.
