ABACAS Gets a Facelift! A Huge Thanks to IAA, Johnson Controls and Some Amazing Volunteers.

Irish Autism Action put our name in the hat to win voluntary refurbishments through “Blue Sky Involve Project” and we were chosen!  Johnson Controls organised an amazing group of volunteers this summer to give ABACAS a huge facelift! Please see their newsletter, below (click on the blue “THANK YOU”), with all of the details of the work done. They also raised more than €3000 for equipment for our new playground!!!

Cassidy Fundraiser Raises Over €5000!

The night out in Raheny proved to be a VERY successful fundraiser for ABACAS.  Over €5000 was raised and applications have been made for Google to match that figure!  Thank you to everyone for your support – particularly Carl and Susan Cassidy for all the work they put into organising and running the event.

ABACAS Kilbarrack Represented at DBA Conference

We’re very fortunate to have a number of staff at ABACAS either working on their Masters in ABA or completing their BCBA’s.  On the 4th and 5th of April, at the Division of Behaviour Analysts Conference this year, the school will be represented in two presentations – one by Ursula Cassidy and the other by Christine Connolly.  Trish Carolan has been supporting both Ursula and Christine in their preparations.  We’re very proud to be the only DES school represented at the conference – break a leg girls!
