Question:

1010 Mr. G. Reynolds asked the Minister for Education and Science the reason a resource teacher has not been appointed at Rossan National School, County Leitrim, when it has been advised that such a teacher is required as there is a child attending this school who has a hearing difficulty. [19765/00]

I am pleased to advise the Deputy that three hours resource teaching support and ten hours special needs assistant support per week have been sanctioned to cater for the needs of the pupil in question.
