Kamla Persad-Bissessar & Autism
When Pandora first started an active campaign some months ago by going on social media using her Blog to address the inadequate resources for those on the Autism Spectrum many liked but expressed no hope for any change. Padora's Blog entry: Open Letter To The Honourable Prime Minister made it to the newspapers, the PM's desk and a couple of Ministries.

The result was the honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar coming out with "Autism Centre" As a solution. You see in this country unless you're a 'big' organization no one wants to hear you. APATT was formed, and elections is around the corner. Another meeting was held with the honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar where she said this:
