Autism Class Application:

Our Teach Solais classes provide an education exclusively for students with a definite diagnosis of Autism meeting DSM IV/V or ICD 10 diagnostic criteria and a professional recommendation that they require the support of a special class.

It should be noted that fulfilling the enrolment eligibility does not necessarily guarantee the student a place in the Autism Special Class. The final decision on eligibility rests with the SENO.

The number of students in the class of 2024/2025 is limited to 12 places with an expected 6 places being available.

Applicants must apply to the mainstream school and indicate if they require a place in the special class. A place can only be offered in Teach Solais (Autism class) if

  • a corresponding place also exists in the respective year the student has applied to join.
  • confirmation of eligibility is received from the SENO.
