Findlay met charity
Neil Findlay MSP met with staff from Bobath Scotland this week to discuss recent legislation that now entitles people in Scotland to communication equipment, and the support to use it.
Around one in four people with Cerebral Palsy are unable to talk or have difficulty speaking, and need to use computers, tablets or other equipment to enable them to communicate. Staff from Bobath Scotland visited the Scottish Parliament, raising awareness of the charity’s services and also highlighting key policy issues with MSPs. Neil Findlay MSP, said:“We want to see children with Cerebral Palsy who cannot speak or have communication difficulties not having to wait for assessment for the communication equipment they need.“The delivery of that equipment, and the support they need to learn to use the equipment – needs to be delivered as soon as possible.”
