AsIAm sent a submission to the National Disability Authority on the new National Disability Strategy that the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth are working on. This new Strategy will succeed the National Disability Inclusion Strategy.
In our submission, we highlight that the following issues need to be included or facilitated by the new National Disability Strategy:
-Ratifying the UNCRPD optional protocol
-Fully implementing the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Autism’s Final Report recommendations
-Introducing an Autism Innovation Strategy on a legislative level which grants our statutory protection
-Ensuring that Public Sector Duty obligations are universally applied across all State and Government Departments and Agencies
-Fully implementing our recommendations set out in our EPSEN submissions
