Enable Ireland's Services

We understand that every family is unique and has diverse needs. Our approach to providing services puts the child and family at the centre of all decision-making that affects them. We provide families with the knowledge and supports to make informed decisions and we build our services around their needs.

Children

We focus on the individual child, not the disability

We provide a range of services including assessment, therapy and support services to children with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities. All our services are provided through teams made up of dedicated therapy and support staff. The range of services that Enable Ireland provides depends on the specific contracts in place between Enable Ireland and the HSE and will vary from region to region and we encourage you to find out about specific Enable Ireland services offered in your region.

Speech therapy has helped immensely in our child’s goals to be verbal and his communication skills have gone from strength to strength. To hear our child’s voice has been a fantastic achievement.
Adults

We provide a range of supports and activities based on expressed need, interest and ability

Enable Ireland's services for adults are tailored to individual need. We assist people with identifying and setting the goals they want to achieve from their service to improve their quality of life. We do this by listening, learning and adapting services accordingly to meet a person’s expressed needs and wishes.
