Our October meeting was held on Thursday, 28th October 2010 at the Auburn Lodge in Ennis. We invited Paul Woulfe, Manager of the Co. Clare Citizens Information Service, to present on the subject "Entitlements for Children with Disabilities". This was a very informative session - we learnt that the Citizens Information Service is an important resource and should be a main port of call for all parents of children with disabilities. Here is the link to the booklet "Entitlements for children with disabilities"
