Deputy Smyth commented “I am very pleased that the project has moved to planning stage. I have been advocating on behalf of students and parents with the Minister for Education. It was confirmed to me that this project has now moved to planning stage.
“The new unit will provide top class facilities for parents and children with autism across South Cavan. There is a significant demand on ASD places across the south of the county and this new class will go some way to easing demand.
“I look forward to continuing to support the school, parents, and students to see this project completed and the new class opened in late 2019,” concluded Deputy Niamh Smyth.
