Meleri Rowlands is a pupil at Ysgol Y Strade, Llanelli since 2007. Meleri was diagnosed as having Asperger’s Syndrome when she was 8 years old. At the time Meleri lived in Bangor and at the time of her diagnosis there were no services available to support children on the Autistic Spectrum and those who cared for them. A small group of parents and grandparents got together and started the Gwynedd and Anglesey Asperger/Autism Supprt Group.
At the Ysgol Strade Prom held in June 2009, Meleri was elected as the Prom Queen.
