Will the school accept documentation from a school & doctor outside of Ireland? We are coming from the USA.

it´s not really up to the school to accept or decline the paperwork, if you want to apply for resource hours or a special needs assistant that is up to the special ed organiser (SENO) for each , see link below, they all seem to differ so I´d contct the SENO where you hope to move to

Thanks for all your input.I have already been in touch with the SENO and she has been very informative.

you´ll need copies of their assessments, I would suggest you contact your proposed school and see if they want those before you arrive. do you think they will need special needs assistants or resource hours? Also try posting on www.adhd.ie , they are very helpful

Does anyone have information on what it takes to get special services in the school? I have two children with ADHD and we will be arriving in Ireland this summer. I want to be as prepared as possible. Is there any paperwork I need to bring with me?
