342. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Education and Science if a person (details supplied) in County Mayo can be provided with an additional ten hours tuition per week in a special school in view of the progress she is making. [14141/98]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin) Micheál Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): My Department has allocated ten hours part-time tuition per week to the special school to cater for the additional special needs of the pupil in question. It is considered that this additional allocation, coupled with the general education service provided by the school, should constitute an appropriate level of educational provision for this pupil.
I understand that my Department's inspectorate reviews the educational needs of this child on a regular basis with the teachers in the special school.
