National Database Update

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011


We at My Special Needs have had a meeting with the Minister for Disability and Mental Health John Moloney re the setting up of a National Database for disability services.

This database will allow people throughout the island of Ireland to  ascertain within seconds what services are currently being provided in their area and by whom. These services could be Occupational Therapy,Physical Therapy,Speech therapy, Pre school services, primary secondary and third level educational services, training courses, respite services and so on.

This would mean that people in every village in every county in Ireland would be aware of the nearest available  service available from cradle to grave for all  people with special needs.

We are scheduled to have another meeting this month to progress the matter and the Database should be live within 6 months. We will keep you posted on progress.
