Did you know 1 in 100 people in the UK have autism, together with their families, affecting 2.8 million people in the UK. To date, no national retailer currently offers a shoe fitting service for autisitic children away from the potential sensory overload of the main sales floor. Noise, smells, lights and long queues all lead to anxiety and frustration for both the child and parent, making an essential activity very stressful.
With this in mind, John Lewis and Partners are launching an autism friendly children’s shoe fitting service at Bluewater.
This is an appointment booking system to ensure the correct environment is available to you and your child’s needs.
