I thank the Deputy for raising this issue, which is important to many families. Of the 91 progressing disability services teams, 83 are fully reconfigured and I am advised that the remaining teams will be reconfigured by the end of November. As such, work is at an advanced stage.

I wish to point out the considerable work the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, has done and continues to do. She has made dramatic progress on waiting lists for assessments of need. Now, similar progress needs to be made on waiting lists for actual therapy intervention services, and she is deeply committed to doing that. In the context of the budget, I wil work lwith her to make further progress in that regard.
