144. Mr. Neville asked the Minister for Education and Science when a teacher’s assistant will be made available to a person (details supplied) in County Limerick. [15823/04]
Mr. N. Dempsey Mr. N. Dempsey
Mr. N. Dempsey:The pupil in question currently has the services of 2.5 hours resource teaching support.
Special needs assistant support may be approved to support a pupil who has a significant medical need for such assistance, a significant impairment of physical or sensory function or where their behaviour is such that they are a danger to themselves or other pupils. The criteria used for the assessment of the need for special needs assistant support is outlined in the Department’s circular 07/02. Special needs assistant support was not approved in this case as the pupil did not meet the criteria set out in circular 07/02.
