Dim the lights. Silence the piped-in music. Turn down the checkout beeps. For an hour on Saturdays, a British supermarket chain is introducing a weekly “quieter hour” aimed at helping people with autism have a better shopping experience by easing sensory overload.
"U.K. Supermarket to Have ‘Quieter Hour’ for People With Autism" is from the July 19, 2018 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Ceylan Yeginsu and narrated by Kristi Burns.
