The Autism (Wales) Bill

Paul Davies AM proposes to introduce a Private Members’ Bill – The Autism (Wales) Bill – having won the Assembly ballot for such Bills. The intention is that the legislation will ensure (among other things) that in every locality:

  • there is a clear and consistent pathway to diagnosis of autism;
  • councils and health boards ensure that children and adults with autism get the support they need;
  • key staff working with people with autism have had autism training;
