Speech therapy ACT not up to standard

By mitcore 27 November 2008 110

Hi all I am mitcore and I have joined this group to see if I could get voices to help make the goverment stand up and listen to the shortage of speech therapist and other specialist in the area.

We do not have enough, I am going on Stateline to voice this opinion and to get help for my son, who is very delayed and unable to talk.

I am not to sure on what to do about it, I would like some help to make the ACT  goverment listen to us as parents and as career of special need kids,

Please give me your thoughts and opinions on how we can achieve the best result

Thanks all.


What’s Your opinion?

HI Cathy

Saw you on Stateline tonight

mitcore 8:23 pm 28 Nov 08

thanks granny i am waiting also for it to hit the site
thank you for waiting just to see me it means alot

mitcore 8:22 pm 28 Nov 08

true, i was more embaressed about them showing my non renovated back yard, LOL why not the front it is much nicer LOL

it turned out well though i was happy with it and dylan was great

it was the way i would have liked it to have gone

Granny 8:14 pm 28 Nov 08

Well, we were watching the wrong thing it turns out, because it wasn’t on the the one we were tuned in to.

I’m so disappointed to have missed it – I never watch telly and I was watching specially. I’ll have to wait for the footage to go up on the website.

*sigh*

I’m so glad it went well, though, and I’m now more impatient to see it than ever!

Congratulations, Cathy!!

mitcore 7:57 pm 28 Nov 08

thanks you
i was blushing the whole time

sepi 7:55 pm 28 Nov 08

i missed the start.

you were great, but they could have explained a bit more about the lack of access to public and private specialists in the ACT

mitcore 7:52 pm 28 Nov 08

It went well i thought

what did you all think?

deezagood 7:48 pm 28 Nov 08

I agree with Soolin – what a lovely little man. I hope that help comes very soon to you and your son.

Soolin 7:37 pm 28 Nov 08

Cathy, you were brilliant! You are very lucky to have such a lovely boy as Dylan, he seems very receptive to learning. I hear your frustration on wanting a diagnosis and not knowing whether it is a long-term issue. Now I’ll get writing and hopefully get our kids some help right now!

this one

I haven’t actually looked at it I am ashamed to say, but I think that is from ACT Labor, not the Rudd government.

mitcore 6:36 pm 28 Nov 08

mitcore 6:32 pm 28 Nov 08
