Parents & Families

Enable Ireland focuses on the individual, not the disability. We aim to provide a unique, tailored service to every child and family using our services.

"The fact that you had somewhere to direct all the questions that come with a diagnosis was a huge difference."

At Enable Ireland we understand that every child and family are unique and have 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.

The services we provide in Children's Services include clinical assessment, therapy, education, training, residential, respite and family support services. Each child receives an individualised service plan based around the needs of the family and the child.

The range of services that Enable Ireland provides depends on the specific contracts in place between Enable Ireland and the HSE, and will vary depending on the part of the country you are in.
