Carmarthenshire Adult Autism Advice (CAAA)

Carmarthenshire Adult Autism Advice is an advice and information service.  It is a service for young people (16-25) in Carmarthenshire with Asperger’s Syndrome/Autism who are not accessing traditional support services. Anyone can contact the service; they don’t need to be referred by a professional.

  • We can provide advice to you by email, telephone or in person.
  • We can help direct you and those who support you, to an appropriate service or organisation.
  • We offer short term mentoring around a specific issue to help to support your independence and to try and reduce any worries which you may have. This could be accessing a service/paying a bill/making an appointment.
  • We can offer training on Autism to organisations, services or clubs as part of the National ASD Aware Scheme.
  • We can show you the resources available on the National Website ASD Info Wales

CAAA is not able to provide:

  • Assessment and diagnosis
  • Crisis intervention
  • Casework/ ongoing support
  • Long term interventions
