Post date: Nov 9, 2016 10:09:29 AM

Christmas Cheshire Oaks

Cheshire Oaks host a monthly Autism Friendly shopping experience, with a couple of adaptions to help ease the anxiety that shopping can cause and also to help build confidence for people on the autism spectrum and their friends/families. The adaptions include; lights turned down low, music turned off/low, a number of quiet zones throughout the site for a place to go if feeling overwhelmed and need a break, staff have received training in autism from our award winning Autism in Practice Department. Also if you visit the customer service office when you arrive, you can collect a map of the site which outlines all the quiet zones and also some autism alert cards which can be handed out to the public or staff if required.

The next Autism Friendly Shopping Night will be on Tuesday, 15th November from 5:00 – 9:00 pm
