Hoodie Up for Autism Day

Apr 4, 2022

By gathering together as a school on 4 April 2022, and putting our hoodies up, together we were showing a little more understanding of how we can support and embrace autistic people and celebrate the diversity autism brings to our world.


Why hoodies? Some autistic people experience sensory sensitivities and can become overloaded by stimuli in their environment; wearing their hoodie up means they can block out bright lights and busy environments which helps calm them.
