The Brothers of Charity (Southern Services) provide a range of services for children and adults with all levels of Intellectual Disabilities, including a specialist service in Autism and another in Challenging Behaviour. These services are located in Counties Cork and Kerry.

The psychologist will work as part of the multidisciplinary team providing diagnostic & assessment services to children where there is a concern in relation to ASD and intervention services to those children diagnosed with ASD.

Ethos
'We are committed to working with people with an intellectual discapability to claim their rightful place as valued citizens. Inclusion is a fundamental principle that underlies all aspects of our work. We believe in the intrinsic value of every person and we aim to further the dignity of all connected with our services'
We continue the Brothers of Charity Services' tradition of being open to the best contemporary influences. We want to be inspired by the most creative ideas.... And to ask how we give them concrete expression.'

Progressing Disabilities
The HSE is committed to the roll out of the Progressing Disabilities nationally and this will have implications for practice locally.
