Written answers (Question to Education)

The National Council for Special Education (NCSE) is responsible for the management of the application process for Special Needs Assistant (SNA) support and I will forward the Deputy's question for its direct reply. 

The NCSE has published details of SNA allocations for all schools which are available to view on a per county basis, including special schools.  Details can be accessed on the NCSE website at www.ncse.ie or by using the following link http://ncse.ie/statistics
