GHEEL AUTISM SERVICES
Gheel Autism Services was founded in Dublin city in 1971 by a small group of parents of autistic people. The name Gheel originates from the region of Geel in Belgium, where since the 7th century people with disabilities were supported to live in the community and not in institutions. Saint Dympna, in the 7th century, fled to Geel from Ireland and is credited with initiating this type of community living support model. The first service managed by Gheel was on the grounds of a building named St Dympna's.
