Our latest film in our Too Much Information campaign, starring Saskia Lupin, focuses on the impact unexpected changes can have on autistic people.
More than 1 in 100 people are on the autism spectrum - that’s around 700,000 people in the UK. Being autistic means seeing, hearing and feeling the world in a different, often more intense way to other people. Autistic people often find social situations difficult and may struggle to filter out the sounds, smells, sights and information they experience, which can leave them feeling overwhelmed, particularly in busy public places.
There are many ways you can help stop an autistic person from feeling overwhelmed on public transport with our top tips. Check out https://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/tmi.aspx to find out ways to help and for more information.
