Welcome to Dan-y-Coed

Dan Y Coed is a state-of-the-art specialist school and residential service for children and young people with complex needs associated with autism. The service is located just a few second’s walk from the long stretches of golden sand that are typical of the Swansea coastline, and just minutes from the vibrant city centre, castles, parks and hidden coastal coves and secluded bays.

Dan y Coed offers specialist education and care placements on a term-time only of 52-week basis, and as with all of Orbis services, our model carefully blends learning, life skills and leisure, supported by our in-house therapy team comprising of Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and Positive Behavioural Therapy.

Children are matched according to their ability and their social compatibility in both education and residential areas, to ensure that each child has access to a suitable peer group.

Overall, evidence indicated that the service users had received robust and individualised support and encouragement to improve their quality of life and that they had made good developmental progress at the home.

Our latest CSSIW Report

I am amazed at the development in R’s verbal communication. R actually asked me questions yesterday which is the first time ever. I am so proud of the reindeer, canvas painting and Christmas Tree ornament that he made and will display them with pride. Thank you for all you have personally done for R, and
