Trinidad Ministry Education & Autism
It is actually not unique to the autism group. Other special need groups like the Blind, Deaf, Downs Syndrome and the differently able have been asking for help for years. What makes Autism unique is it takes more professionals to adequately educate and help those under the spectrum than those with other challenges. What is more is the spectrum is so wide that you can't simply put one 'bandage' and expect it to work for everyone who is autistic. In the government's / economist's eyes this represents enormous cost for a small percentage of society.
