Surfing aids autistic youngsters


A group of parents from Swansea whose autistic children receive surf lessons say they had to overcome considerable prejudice before finding an outdoor pursuits school that would take them.

They also warn that the future of the classes, which they pay for themselves, is in doubt because they only have several weeks of funding left.

Tom Singleton spoke to parents, an instuctor and Phillip Stead and Robert Parton, two of the youngsters taking part.
