Pre-school, primary, secondary and post school options

Special Education Needs Officers, Offaly.

The National Council for Special Education offers support for parents through its network of Special Educational Needs Organisers (SENO). Each SENO has responsibility for specific schools, primary, post primary and special, within their area. In general, the role of the SENO is to ensure that a child with special educational needs receives the supports they are entitled to. The SENO is available to parents to discuss any issues they have and to offer support and expertise. The SENO is a good person to contact if you are starting to explore local education options for your child.
