From the Consistory announce the hiring of a full-time stimulator to meet the existing demand, whose cost assumes the City "in an exercise of commitment and responsibility," despite the fact that the competences in this area are from the Autonomous Community.
The Councilor for Disability, Cristina García-Vaso, explains that "the Early Care Service caters to children who have developmental disorders or who are at risk of developing them." In recent years, the demand for early care has continued to grow between the end of 2015 and 2016 to generate a waiting list that in January 2017 was 22 children, among which we find various developmental disorders: autism, syndromes, severe language disorders, etc. From the City Council we consider that it was totally necessary to respond To these children and their families. "
That is why "the previous year, the parents met with me, the situation was explained and it was agreed to ask the counseling funds for the contracting of a stimulator that could meet these needs. In May there was an appointment with the counseling in which we requested the Means of eliminating or canceling this waiting list, and on the grounds of budget, the counselor refused this assistance, and various steps have been taken since then to try to resolve the situation. "
The mayor clarified that, "however, 2017 begins with a large accumulation of patients on the waiting list, and on January 31, 2017 the parents contact me again to notify me again of their demands and treatment needs. Could wait longer and finally, on 13 March, a new stimulator began to work full-time, closing the waiting list, whose cost assumes the City as a whole.
