About Our School
ABACAS Special School Kilnamanagh is a non-denominational special school for children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and complex needs. The school is under the patronage of Autism Ireland.
We offer all our pupils a broad and balanced curriculum that is child-centred and evidence-based and takes into consideration each child’s learning style, individual needs and abilities. We have 30 pupils enrolled across five classes. Each child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) designed to meet their needs, as identified through formal assessment. Pupils are assigned to a classroom according to their abilities and the requirements of their IEP.
ABACAS is regulated by the Regulations of Primary Schools in Ireland.
"If they can't learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn."
