AutismWales, is the national autism site for Wales. On the site you will find information about what autism is, and what services and training opportunities are available online and across Wales. The website is helping to deliver the Welsh Government autism vision and strategy and has a key place in ensuring that Wales is an autism friendly nation.

There are also a wide range of free downloadable resources that have been developed with autistic people, parents/ carers and professionals from across Wales.

It is estimated that autism affects 1 in 100 people, together we can help improve the knowledge, awareness and understanding of autism to make positive and lasting changes to people’s lives.
