  PLEASE SEE BELOW SOME OF THE CHARITIES WE HAVE WORKED WITH: Irish Autism Action (IAA) was formed in 2001 by a group of parents who took a public stance in relation to the needs and rights of their children. The mission of IAA is to raise the quality of life of individuals and their families affected by autism through ensuring the provision of the highest standards in education, care, support, employment and equality of living opportunities in partnership with families.As well as establishing Ireland’s first National Diagnostic and Assessment Centre, Solas, the IAA also have 12 schools around the country. Last April the IAA launched a National Autism Helpline which is operated by parents. It is Ireland’s first autism helpline which provides information, advice and support for people with an autistic spectrum disorder, their families and professionals. Keith Duffy is the Patron of Irish Autism Action and works tirelessly to promote an understanding of autism and attract support to help us deliver our range of services. www.autismireland.ie or contact the head office at+353(0) 44 93 31609.   Irish Deaf Kids is a "for-impact" venture aimed at supporting inclusive education for deaf children in Ireland while empowering parents to develop their child's full potential.   For parents, educators / teachers, deaf people and others, IDK provides an interactive website and online forum for discussion and guidance on best practice for education.   Over 2,000 deaf children currently attend mainstream schools in Ireland. Parents and teachers need to network and share ideas to ensure consistent educational standards.  Early intervention and language acquisition are necessary for deaf children to have a mainstream education but parents and teachers in Ireland lack key reference points. This is where IDK comes in. web: www.irishdeafkids.ie forum: http://forum.irishdeafkids.ie/ email: info@irishdeafkids.ie  Tel: 01-4903237

  Dyslexia is quite common, about 8% of the Irish population have dyslexia. It is genetic therefore one is usually born with it, and it is lifelong. However, with early identification and appropriate teaching, children with dyslexia can learn strategies to circumvent the difficulties. They are then able to achieve their potential, which in many cases is considerable. Parents and teachers need to be aware of dyslexia, and know that with early identification, specialist teaching and lots of support and encouragement, each child with dyslexia will be successful and reach their full potential. For information on dyslexia in Ireland please contact the Dyslexia Association of Ireland at www.dyslexia.ie or 01 6790276.
