 585.  Deputy Seán Crowe Information on Sean Crowe Zoom on Sean Crowe  asked the Minister for Health Information on James Reilly Zoom on James Reilly  if he is satisfied that the physical developmental needs of children with cerebral palsy are being met within the State education system; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10024/12]

Minister of State at the Department of Health (Deputy Kathleen Lynch): Information on Kathleen Lynch Zoom on Kathleen Lynch I presume the Deputy is referring to the physical developmental needs and not the educational needs of children with cerebral palsy. Where children with special needs require physical and other therapies, this support is provided by the Health Service Executive. Accordingly, the Department has asked the HSE to reply to the Deputy directly outlining the physical and other therapy supports provided to children with cerebral palsy.
