Deputy Seán Haughey: The National Council for Special Education (NCSE) has responsibility, through its network of Special Educational Needs Organisers (SENOs), for the establishment of special education facilities and for allocating resource teachers and special needs assistants to schools to support children with special needs. School transport for children with special needs is generally provided to the nearest recognised mainstream school, special class/special school or unit that is, or can be resourced to meet the child’s special educational needs under my Department’s criteria. My Department will request the NCSE to clarify the position regarding the allocation of resources.
