Got Get 'Em: We're Making the World Autism Friendly.

Add To Cart

Absolutely nothing on the Olympics! our covers boasts, partly because everything else you looked at during this summer was about London 2012. We had another worldly challenge on our hands – making the world a more autism friendly place. Inside, in Who Wants to Push the First Domino? We talk about how you – yes you! – can make the world more autism friendly. Enough wishing, we thought, let’s each do our own bit. We invented (with graphic designer Jo’s help) this nice little chap called Mr Dom-in-the-Know. He shared a guide to autism friendly outings for you and your family and - drumroll – and a tear-off guide to share with public places on how to make their environment more autism friendly. Okay so you don’t get the fun of perforations online, but if you really like this guide we do have some archive print issues so ask away.
