Sounds a great initiative, but isn't it still going to be an awful lot of sensory overload with all those brightly coloured toys?

I think this is great there doing this with staff being made more aware of autism. But straight away for me there missing the concept of it..tills don't open till 11am? Tills should be open from the word go because my son wouldn't last longer than 10 minutes in there..
