DCYA are currently carrying out an “End of Year One Review of AIM“.  A survey will shortly be emailed out to a sample of parents and pre-school providers who have had some involvement with AIM.  If you have received a request to complete this survey, we would very much value your response as your input will inform the future of AIM.  The research is being carried out by RSM, and the survey is being sent out by Pobal on their behalf.

For children who are currently receiving AIM supports and are eligible to avail of a 2nd year of the ECCE programme from September 2018

If the child is eligible and is returning to the same pre-school setting for a second year and circumstances have not changed, services in receipt of AIM Level 7 supports must submit a 2nd year extension request for all eligible children. This request can be submitted via the AIM tab on the PIP Portal and is available from Thursday 26th April.

 

If the child who is currently availing of AIM supports is moving to another pre-school in September 2018, a new AIM application has to be made by the new pre-school provider in conjunction with the parent(s).  This application process will open on 1 May 2018. 

 

New AIM applications:

For children eligible for the ECCE programme for the first time from September 2018 where AIM supports are required, the pre-school provider, in conjunction with the parent(s) should make an application for AIM by completing an Access and Inclusion Profile.  This application process will open on 1 May 2018.

To apply for a child’s 1st year Level 7 support a service request must be included in the submission of a Level 4: AIM Application.  This application form can be accessed via the AIM tab on the PIP Portal and will be available from Tuesday 1st May.

Please contact onlinesupport@pobal.ie if you require any support in the submission of your application.

 

Apply early!

Applications should be made as early as possible to ensure that the relevant supports are in place when required.

Increase in the ECCE Capitation for employing a LINC Graduate who has agreed to take on the role and responsibilities of Inclusion Co-ordinator

Please note the Inclusion Co-ordinator must work in the pre-school setting to which the application relates. However, the Inclusion Co-ordinator does not have to be based in one of the pre-school rooms, e.g. they can work as the manager at the pre-school setting.
