Plans to be finalised for resumption of special needs education


A meeting is taking place this morning to finalise plans for special needs education to resume next Thursday.

Department of Education officials will update disability, autism and carers' organisations after an agreement was reached yesterday.

Special needs students at primary level will be able to return to the classroom in six days' time.

Minister of State for Disabilities, Anne Rabbitte, says the schools could be forced to close again if there's a Covid-19 outbreak
