June 2015: Children with Additional Needs – A Model of Provision

Introduction

At the core of this submission to the DCYA is the belief that children with additional needs have a right to participate in a quality early childhood education experience. Discussion and recommendations within this submission draw extensively on primary and secondary research: existing literature; National Reports; Pobal Survey 2012; Early Childhood Ireland surveys from 2012 and 2015; annual call logs from members as well as consultation meetings with members, specialist organisations, campaign groups and parents in 2014/2015.  

Assumptions

Early Childhood Ireland is working on the assumption that government and early childhood operators are working together to ensure best outcomes for children with additional needs, that there is a commitment to putting fair and transparent processes in place, that settings are accountable for public investment and that trust and respect exists between the DCYA and the early childhood operators within this system.
