Thank you and yes we live in Trinidad, I have joined several local groups on fb and have tried to find out as much as I can, but special education isn't a part of the mainstream school carriculum, children have to attend private institutions which is quite costly, a simple 1/2 hr of occupational therapy can cost $350TT or more. One of the groups I've joined has been requesting a meeting with the education minister for so long, they formed a petition which has over 15000 signatures and the ministry refuses to acknowledge the request, so that should give you an idea of the struggle. The resources are very limited, this country is so small and honestly the differently abled and special needs individuals are continually overlooked, sure the authorities will come out and say they have this in place and that but parents can't seen to be able to find these many resources, even getting a government assisted grants are difficult, this past week there was a release by government saying a grant will be made available for special needs/disabled but parents and caregivers have to jump through hoops to access it and sometimes the application isn't even successful. Another example I can give is my own experience. When my son was diagnosed with ASD in March, the Dr wrote a report and gave it to me to present to the school principal so an aide can be assigned to him as well as concessions during exams, the principal assured me he'll give it the school's social worker the following week when she came to visit. He had a Dr's appointment last Monday and she asked if he was able to get an aide, so I told her not yet, I went the very next day to speak with the principal again only to be told he gave the report to the social worker just the week before at the beginning of the school term. So he had the report for months and didn't hand it in, parents and caregivers complain that request for aides had been made for years and none were forthcoming. It's an uphill battle honestly. It's like society just overlooks the most vulnerable.
