In addition, we work to raise awareness of the communication and sensory difficulties experienced by people on the autistic spectrum. We actively promote the rights and entitlements of autistic people as valued members of their community and of society as a whole.
We have recently been awarded funding to provide a Responsive Communication Service for Autistic Children and Young People in Carmarthenshire. This twelve-month pilot project will investigate the effectiveness of a new way of delivering our Responsive Communication service using a combination of small-group workshops and home visits. We are very excited to be starting this piece of work! To find ot more, please visit our Responsive Communication Pilot Project page.
