What is 'Autism Friendly'?
There are many venues and public locations that are advertising themselves as 'Autism' Friendly' and yet there are no recognised official standards to define what that actually means.
We have put together some useful tips and guidlines on our Autism Friendly page to help people determine whether they really are Autism Friendly.
