Special Needs Parents Association exists to support all parents of children with special needs irrespective of age or diagnosis, by advocating on a national level for improved treatment, education, welfare and acceptance for our children.

The Special Needs Parents Association was set up early in 2010 by likeminded parents from all over Ireland who realised that there was a need for a national organisation to represent the views of all parents who had children with special needs, regardless of their diagnosis or age.

We chose not to distinguish between parents who had children with physical disabilities; intellectual disabilities, sensory disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, learning difficulties and non-diagnosed conditions, for all parents of these children had one thing in common. We are parents of children with special needs.

What do we do?

We do not seek to compete with other local groups, but to help point parents in the right direction who may be looking for a local group or service and to provide parent to parent support in the areas where there is none. The Association has a network of Area Representatives offering local support to parents and to liaise with local groups and services. If there is no support group in your area, we can help you get one started by promoting it online for you.

On a national level the Association aims to represent parents who feel strongly about their children’s access to the Irish education system as well as to society in general.
