ASD Wales Welcome to ASDinfoWales, the national site for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Here you will find information about Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Autism and Asperger Syndrome), service details, training opportunities and updates on the implementation of the ASD Strategic Action Plan for Wales. You will also find downloadable resources that can be shared with individuals with ASD, their family and carers. This site is aimed at those working with children and adults with ASD. It is estimated that ASD affects 1 in 100 people, together we can improve knowledge and awareness and make real changes to peoples lives.
Explaining CoronavirusThe coronavirus outbreak is having an impact on everybody’s life. Social distancing means that most events are cancelled, schools are closed, and people must work from home when they can. This is hard for everyone, but we know that for some autistic people of all ages these things could trigger intense stress and lead to a meltdown or a shut down. Therefore, we have collected a series of useful resources that autistic people and their families can use during this time of changes.
