As you all are sick of hearing - in July 2008 boy wonder was referred to a speech therapist employed by Enable Ireland; a HSE funded organisation charged with the care of children with a physical disability. In the words of the Attorney General of the State of California, this particular therapist was ' a threat to public safety'. The Children First officer charged with the implementation of child protection guidelines within the HSE West issued a report in September 2008 stating that by referring my child to this therapist, Enable Ireland were in breach of these guidelines. It is almost two years since that report - and almost a year since I had my son's services transferred to another service provider. In all that time I had no contact from Enable Ireland, until a letter arrived last week from the medical director who is a consultant paediatrician.
This is what it said:
I would be very pleased to discuss Rory with you at a time that is convenient.
I know that you had a number of concerns about Rory and the Enable Ireland services and would wish to address these with you.
Best Wishes etc etc.
Two years after such a serious incident I get this kind of nonsensical response. And the icing on the cake: both my name and address were written incorrectly.
Now tell me, would you bother meeting a muppet like this?
