"We always rushed in where many would fear to venture," Dr Barbara Stokes, the first Medical Director of St. Michael's House.
Since our foundation in 1955, St. Michael's House has been a pioneer in the development of community-based services for children and adults with an intellectual disability and their families.
The first service opened by St. Michael's House was Ireland's first Special National School for pupils with a moderate intellectual disatbility in Rathgar. Since then, we have grown to become one of Ireland's largest provider's of community-based services for children and adults with an intellectual disability. Services provided include
- Clinical and Counselling Services
- Early Services
- Individualised supports
- Educational Services
- Vocational Services
- Employment Services
- Residential Services
- Respite Services
- Specialist Alzheimer’s Services for people with intellectual disability
- Social, Sporting and Recreational Services
Working in partnership with people with intellectual disabilities and their families, we are leaders in developing services which are guided by best practice and the belief that people with an intellectual disabilities are full and equal members of society.
