AP Cymru provide a peer support outreach service for families going through the autism diagnostic process, and the crucial months which follow, by pooling together our lived experience to provide a warm, friendly, and accessible service. The majority of our staff are autistic and are parents to autistic children, so we are able to provide well-rounded, positive, and understanding information to parent/carers.
Our families can access a wide variety of workshops, training courses, clinics, guest speakers, and family fun sessions. The waiting lists for therapies and other services in most areas are incredibly long, therefore the workshops we facilitate allow parent/carers to access general information from professionals while they wait for their child to reach the top of the waiting lists for more individualised programmes.
We also provide fun and interactive workshops for organisations and businesses of all shapes and sizes, creating opportunities to engage in continued professional development which enhance the day-to-day experiences of thousands of autistic people and their families. This in turn assists with ending the stigma which is still sadly linked to autism within our society. Our workshops and talks are not just for adults. We provide assemblies and other talks within schools, catering for all ages and stages from the Early Years Foundation Phase (KS1) through to Key Stage 5.
As AP Cymru is not in receipt of any government or other large-scale grants, we work tirelessly to raise the funds needed to ensure families receive the support they need and deserve.
