” We’ll he looks normal why can’t he wear one ” the lady heading into work on the bus blurted out ,…. the man with the hard hat added ” best to leave him at home ” and so begins another day travelling in Ireland on public transport for people with disabilities .
A Dail Committee was informed that persons with disabilities and their cares received little of no support from the service providers during the 5 months of the COVID 19 Pandemic with 4 Ministers responsible for Disabilities one wonders what are these Ministers and the Government doing >
It’s an exhausting and endless fight just to get basic services for your vulnerable dependent in the first instance then to be abandoned bu the State during a Pandemic was the last straw for many of the 18,000 people with ASD .
The Irish Government have cut respite services for person with ASD by €20 million causing huge damage and loss of opportunity for 1000s .
