A Greystones mother has dubbed the HSE’s Progressing Disability Services for Children and Young People (PDSCYP) ‘a complete failure’ after having to watch her 12-year-old autistic son get to the point that he stopped eating and sleeping and was too afraid to go to school before being given support from clinicians.

Aisling Foran last week won a MACE Unsung Hero Award for the work she does as Chairperson of Triple A Wicklow, a voluntary organisation that advocates for and supports those with Autism and related neurodivergent conditions. She is a parent of Aidan (12) and Odhran (21) and works full time, but has also dedicated her time to run the charity since 2017.
