UNIVERSITY of Limerick students, training to be physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists, will placed in primary schools. 

The innovative programme will aim to help to provide better outcomes for children and families in regeneration communities.

Health Alliances for Practice-based Professional Education and Engagement – or HAPPEE – is a UL community partnership delivering in-school interventions in physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.

The collaboration between UL, Limerick City and County Council, St Gabriel’s Foundation and six primary schools in Limerick places UL students training to be physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists directly into classrooms.
