  • Release date: 18 February 2016
In April 2008, the Welsh Government published the Autistic Spectrum Disorder Strategic Action Plan (ASD SAP); an all-age strategy intended to improve understanding and provision of services for individuals with ASD in Wales (WAG, 2008).

At the end of 2012 the Welsh Government commissioned the People and Work Unit to undertake an external evaluation of the ASD SAP. This evaluation has two main objectives:

  • to undertake a comprehensive assessment of data availability and gaps to inform the development of indicators to measure progress
  • to undertake an assessment of how the ASD SAP is meeting its original aims.

This report outlines the evaluation methodology and progress made against key areas of the ASD SAP. It also outlines the conclusions of the evaluation in relation to the outcomes in each of these areas.
