The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities has published research (01 March 2021) on ‘Post-school Transitions for Students with Intellectual Disabilities’ which has found that there is limited guidance for children with intellectual disabilities in Ireland as they prepare to leave school, contributing to a significant underrepresentation within the workforce and further and higher education in the State.
