The SENIS MLD is a regional service made up of a team of professionals with knowledge, understanding and specific training in Moderate Learning Difficulties and associated SEN. The team supports primary and post-primary aged children and young people and the mainstream schools that they attend.
We provide training, advice and support while working for the effective inclusion of children and young people with Moderate Learning Difficulties.
Special Educational Needs Coordinators may also access resources from their local Moderate Learning Difficulty Advisory Teacher or by contacting the Service.
Part of our role is to support children and young people, their parents and schools by providing training. We offer a regional and school-based training programme, specifically designed for school staff in primary and post-primary mainstream schools.
This includes an online training service that school staff may access via the Children and Young People's Service Training Programme. Alternatively, school Special Educational Needs Coordinators may request face-to-face training via your Moderate Learning Difficulty Advisory Teacher or by contacting the Service.
