Last week the Hunts Post revealed that disabled people are waiting so long for OT assessment that the Huntingdon Freemen's Charity had in a handful of cases stepped in to pay for it. Letters came flooding. A woman in her 80s says she has been waiting since April. A mother of a seven-year-old has been waiting two years. Here are our readers' stories. A MOTHER has spoken of her outrage after her autistic daughter has been waiting two years for an OT assessment. Sharon Carr says a request for an Occupational Therapist (OT) was first lodged in 2007 when she moved to West Avenue, Ramsey. The home needed adaptations for seven-year-old Ashleigh who has cerebral palsy, development delay and autism. Miss Carr says Ashleigh needs a downstairs bedroom as she cannot safely make her own way upstairs and she is getting too heavy to be carried.
