Special Education

National Council for Special Education (NCSE).

On 20th March, 2017 three support services;

  • Special Education Support Service (SESS)

  • National Behaviour Support Service (NBSS)

  • Visiting Teacher Service for Children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing and Children who are Blind/Visually Impaired (VTHVI) 

transferred from the Department of Education and Skills (DES) to the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) and joined with the services already being provided by NCSE’s SENOs and administrative staff to form a new NCSE Support Service.


This new service aims to develop schools’ capacity to include students with special educational needs and to promote a continuum of educational provision which is inclusive and responsive.

Follow our progress!
