The National Autistic Society's Autism Hour

The National Autistic Society (NAS) are asking shops and businesses to organise an Autism Hour and take steps to create an autism-friendly environment. On the 2nd October the NAS are encouraging shops and services to dim lights, turn down music and ensure staff have an awareness of autism. The initiative is part of the Too Much Information campaign, which found that 64% of autistic people are avoiding going to the shops.
