Autism JSNA picture

Autism Spectrum Disorders also sometimes referred to as autism, are developmental disorders characterised by impaired social interaction and communication, severely restricted interests, and highly repetitive behaviours. However, people with ASD can be helped to enjoy safer, healthier, more sociable, more creative and happier lives.

This needs assessment provides information to help us understand the needs of children and adults with autism in Swindon and makes recommendations to improve services and support available to them.

The bulletin below gives an overview of the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Swindon UA, the services which are available, the experiences of local people with ASD and of their carers, together with refreshed recommendations for action in the future.
