Enable Ireland works in partnership with the HSE Disabilities service through their joint North Tipperary Early Intervention and School Age Teams to provide specialist therapeutic assessment and intervention to children with complex disabilities and/or developmental delay in the North Tipperary catchment area.
The services that Enable Ireland provide in Children’s Services include clinical assessment, therapy, education, training, residential, respite and family support services. Each child receives an individualised service plan based around the needs of the family and child.
Both Early Intervention and School Age Teams in North Tipperary include psychologists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. The Early Intervention Team also includes an early intervention educator, a paediatric link worker and a paediatric nurse. The School Age Team has some access to a counselling public health nurse.
