The Red Door School

Department of Education : Roll No. 20381D

The Red Door School is a Special School for children with autism and complex needs. 

The Red Door was originally founded by parents in 2001 and was one of Ireland’s first schools where individual educational programs were provided under the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis. Its history shows the school expanding and moving to its current premises in Monkstown in 2009. In July 2010, The Red Door joined with 6 other Pilot ABA schools in having Autism Ireland recognised as a new Patron Body by the Department of Education. In 2011, The Red Door transitioned to Special School status. Its official Department of Education Roll Number is 20381D.

February Fundraiser Raises € 2630 For School Equipment

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, donated prizes and gave their time to make this event a success.

A huge thank you to both our wonderful Red Door tutor Amanda and to Bernie Conn who worked tirelessly to make this fantastic raffle happen. Thank you so much ladies for all your work and effort for the Red Door children. The raffle raised funds for outdoor and sensory equipment for our school. This super equipment has been purchased for the school and is presently being enjoyed by our wonderful and deserving children.

The fundraiser was held on Sunday the 19th in the Dropping Well Pub in Milltown. A big thank you to Eddie, the Manager who was so helpful and accommodating.

We want to thank Mr. Ray O'Brien of Tuck O'Briens, Citywest for his extremely generous donations of a lawnmower, excellent power tools and garden accessories (Dad of Carol O'Brien -one of our longest standing tutors!). We appreciate your kindness.
