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 school's Principal is Ms. Brenda Harrington, appointed to this post in September 2015. 

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.
