Deliver Timely and Quality Assessment of Need

Deliver Timely and Quality Assessment of Need

Sign our petition to deliver timely, quality Assessment of Need for children with disabilities in Ireland.

Why is this important?

The Disability Act enshrines in law that children must have their needs assessed within 6 months. This is not happening and is causing a delay to children accessing therapy early. Early intervention is a golden opportunity to maximise a child's ability to meet their potential and it is time-sensitive.

Reasons for signing

  • It is not ok for HSE to interpret Disability Act 2005 to suit their agenda. It is not ok for HSE to dilute AON because of the under provision of professionals to make sure it is done properly. It is not ok for government to allow this scandal to happen right before their eyes and to do nothing to stop it.
  • Every child needs to be assessed and supported to their need and ability.
  • The delay in assessment and then the years long wait for treatment is nothing short of a scandal
