National Autistic Society Autism Hour
From 02-10-17 to 09-10-17

The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour is the UK’s first week-long event, launching 2 October, where shops and services take 60 minutes to provide autistic people with a break from the overload of too much information.

As part of our Too Much Information campaign and with the support of shopping centre owner intu, in the week of 2 October, The National Autistic Society is asking shops and businesses to take simple steps for 60 minutes that lead to a more autism-friendly world.

Shops and business is asked to take simple steps in their stores, including:

  • Turning down music and other noise
  • Dimming the lights
  • Sharing information about autism with employees
  • Sharing information about Too Much Information campaign
