The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour

In the week beginning 2nd October, with the support of shopping centre intu, The National Autistic Society will be launching ‘Autism Hour’. Shops and businesses across the UK will be taking simple steps for 60 minutes that lead to a more autism-friendly world. Participating shops and businesses will be turning down music and other noise, dimming lights and sharing information about autism with their employees.

For more information about ‘Autism Hour’ and to find out which shops and businesses on your local high street are taking part please visit the link below.

Asda has also launched a new scheme ‘Happy Little Helpers’ to make shopping less stressful for children with autism.

The Happy Little Helpers shopping lists were created by one of the retailer’s employees, whose five-year-old son has non verbal autism.
