The Discovery Building (Autism Unit)

Ardscoill Padraig Autism Unit GardenCluain Eala is our most recent development.

It opened in September 2011 and its teaching methodologies are specifically structured to cater for the needs of students with autism. The unit is hugely successful and despite the addition of a new classroom in 2014 it is operating at full capacity. There is an excellent team of qualified staff whose caring, patient and dedicated demeanor maintains a wonderful rapport with the boys and girls engaged in the programme. Currently, there are nine students enrolled and three new students are arriving in September 2015. Such is the success of Cluain Eala that a brand-new state-of-the-art building is in the planning stages with the Department of Education and Skills for completion next year.
