Helping people prepare for a visit
The first step to develop an autism-friendly museum is to provide clear and adequate information about your institution and the way it wants to be autism-friendly: what is there to see and to do, what adjustments have been made to make it more autism-inclusive, what tools and aids are available for visitors. This information should be easily available (off-line and/or online) for people with autism and their supporters. A predictable, trusted environment and knowing how to ‘use’ the museum can refine future experience of those with higher support needs.
