We have an almost 3 year old son recently diagnosed with autism and sensory processing disorder. Our experience so far with the CDAU (the government offered service) is less than desirable. These kids who need intensive therapy are offered (at least in my case) speech therapy if you are lucky once every 4 weeks in an environment which is not welcoming at all (in my case in a room in a police station in Qrendi) and no resources whatsoever and Occupational Therapy at same frequency and which is held online!!!! So we have to resort to private therapy at an average cost of EUR 300/400 per month. These kids deserve better especially those whose parents / carers cannot afford this expense. Also any government provided session is done in the morning....what about parents who work??? I would like our party to speak more about this and commit that if in government it takes this matter seriously.
