A FIVE YEAR WAIT FOR ADULT DISABILITY SERVICES? (PART 5)

That is what my daughter may be facing.

As I wrote previously here, here, here and here, it is impossible to say who is at fault, but clearly there is a lack of interest in this area and no adequate planning for school leavers with disabilities and special needs.

Apparently medium term can mean anything from one to five years.
