“Small changes that can easily be made to accommodate autism really do add up and can transform a young person’s experience of being in hospital. It really can make all the difference.”

Everything Where it Needs to Be

“To have my needs met as an autistic person would have transformed my experience in hospital. The sensory input added to my emotional dysregulation. I couldn’t engage with all the therapy on offer because of the added distress. Small changes would have made a big difference.”

“Not responding to sensory needs is like not putting ramps in for someone in a wheelchair. When the environment and support is right the issues that come up are more likely to be mental health related – stuff that you’re actually in hospital for.”
