11/01/2019: The DCYA AIM team has developed a new Information leaflet for childcare services and parents

The DCYA AIM team has developed a new Information leaflet for childcare services and parents. The Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) is a model of supports designed to promote inclusion and to ensure that children with disabilities can meaningfully participate in the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) free pre-school programme in mainstream pre-school settings.

AIM is a child-centred model, offering a range of universal and targeted supports. It offers tailored, practical supports based on need and does not require a formal diagnosis of disability. Full details can be found on the AIM website www.aim.gov.ie
