Starfish Centre Children Starfish Centre Child

The Starfish Centre for Disabled Children was opened in 2010. Currently there are 84 children registered. Visiting physiotherapists treat children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. Every day classes are held for children with various physical and mental disabilities such as Down’s syndrome and autism. The children are taught by 5 trained special needs teachers. The number of children attending is growing constantly with referrals coming from hospitals, schools, community centres and the Department Of Social Welfare. We sent one of our teachers for a years specialist training at the Mary Chapman School for deaf children and we now have three deaf students.
