Toys R Us stores in the UK recently set up a "quiet hour" on the weekends for children, parents and caregivers who are affected by autism.

During quiet hour, Toys R Us dims the lights and reduces the number of fluorescent lights in the space, music and announcements are stopped and autism-friendly signage is used. The serene store environment was designed to better suit the needs of a child with autism, especially during the busy rush that occurs in the weeks leading up to Christmas. By creating a safe space for those wit autism, Toys R Us creates a stress-free environment for kids and their parents to browse toys in.

Some other retail stores have also started implementing quiet hours for the benefits of shoppers with autism.
