A charity’s urging stores to bring in autism-friendly shopping sessions.

It’s an initiative already being used in a branch of Toys R Us in Leeds.

It sometimes opens early with lights dimmed, the music dipped and the power cut to hand dryers.

The aim is to avoid the kinds of stimuli that can be oppressive for autistic children.

Mark Lever from the National Autistic Society, says it’s a great idea.
