UK’s First National ‘Quiet Hour’

UK initiates a national ‘Quiet Hour’ in 13 shopping centers. Starting on October 2nd, shops will dim the lights and turn down music for an hour each day for a week. This initiative follows on from a survey showing that 64% of people with autism avoid going shopping due to loud pubic noise. This is a very important initiative as it spreads awareness of autism and encourages people to make the world more autism friendly. Here’s a link to this wonderful news!
