I propose to take Questions Nos. 332 to 334, inclusive, together.

The recently published Programme for Government document "Our Shared Future" recognises the need to improve services for both children and adults with disabilities through better implementation and by working together across Government in a better way. 

The  Government commits to prioritising early diagnosis and access to services for children and ensuring that the most effective interventions are provided for each child, to guarantee the best outcomes.

As the Deputy's questions relate to service issues, they have been referred to the HSE for direct reply.
