Description:
The provision of services for the intellectually disabied, particularly the moderate and severely handicapped with challenging behaviour, has been a feature of overall services in the large psychiatric hospitals. Services for the intellectually disabled have. always been a major component of service delivery at S1. Ita's Hospital, Portrane, where upwards of 50% of patients in the Hospital would be classified as persons with intellectual disability at anyone time. In 1974 those services were formalised with the appointment of a Medical Director of Intellectual Disability at the HospitaL Over the years ongoing progress has been made in developing specialist services for the intellectually disabled at S1. Ita's. The Hospital was segregated on a phased basis. This process was completed in the late 80s with the Hospital being formally divided between Psychiatry and Intellectual Disability Services. The service, as developed, encompassed residential care, including day care at St. Ita's, the provision of day facilities in the community and an evolving programme of community houses. In the late 80s the Good Counsel Centre in Ballyboden was developed arid became the hub of a statutory intellectual disability service south of the river Liffey.
