ASD Mythbusting

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) support

This aims to support parents and carers of children and young people who are awaiting an assessment for an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or if they have a diagnosis.


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ‘Myth-Busting’ campaign.

The myth busting project aims to raise awareness for parents and carers of children and young people who are either awaiting and assessment along the Neurodevelopmental Pathway or who already have a diagnosis of Autism.


The campaign consists of a short web-based animation which explains what support can be given at home, at school and from the community regardless of whether formal diagnoses have been received. It aims to support a needs-led approach to supporting neurodiversity in line with National thinking.


Clips from the animation are also being displayed electronically in the central bus station and car parks. Swansea Council social media channels will also raise awareness.


The project is a joint venture between Swansea ALN Inclusion Team and Neath Port Talbot Inclusion Team. It has been made possible through West Glamorgan Regional Partnership Board Funding, as part of Neurodevelopmental Transformation Fund.

A digital and printed resource book for schools has also been developed and made available to support schools and parents – please find the document below.
