Autism Awareness is coming

I think personally (as CEO of Square Peg Foundation and parent to two autistic children) that Autism awareness has made great strides in the past couple of years. Many shops now offer quiet hours which are aimed at people (children mostly) on the spectrum but are also beneficial to those with other conditions. Most cinemas offer Autism Friendly or Relaxed showings where the lights are just dimmed, the music isn't as loud and there are no pesky adverts, theatres are also catching on to the benefits of inclusion.

We obviously run our own events, our Stay & Play sessions are whole family events and we team up with local organisations to promote what's going for our families in the West Mi
