Questions on Promised Legislation
Very briefly, we have included 150 facilities - 75 preschools and 75 schools - in a pilot project for which he have allocated additional resources. We will be recruiting 19 speech and language therapists and 12 occupational therapists to service this pilot group. We believe that by integrating the delivery of intervention by specialist therapists with the work of the school teachers and the special needs assistants we will get better continuity of service and better outcomes for children. We are piloting it. It has to be tested. If it is successful we will obviously seek to expand it.
