Background to the Integrated Autism Service
Many autistic individuals cannot access diagnosis, emotional, behavioural, low level mental health or life skills support because they are not eligible for mental health and learning disability services.
In response, the Welsh Government has committed £13 million up to 2021 to develop an Integrated Autism Service (IAS) across Wales.
In April 2019, our region launched an Integrated Autism Service to support people with Autism across Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea. The service aims to raise awareness and understanding of Autism, provide diagnostic assessment, intervention and support services for people with autism and provide training and support to parents and carers of both children, young people and adults and professionals to increase their knowledge, skills and understanding.
