#WonderfulWednesday: Restaurant launches autism 'quality time' scheme

This week's wonderful Wednesday share came via  Dimensions and a link from the Coventry Telegraph article Restaurant launches autism 'quality time' scheme.

Andrew Iredale co-owns Seasons Restaurant in Leamington Spa.  He has a seven year old son with autism and understands how difficult it can be for families who have children on the autistic spectrum to go out to dinner. As a way of raising awareness and combating stigma, the restaurant is hosting an 'early meal option' for autistic dinners and their family every first and third Friday of the month starting in June.

Isn't it great to raise awareness right where you work? 

We've struggled with taking our children to all sorts of places.  Even apparently child friendly places from the aquarium to the playgym are sometimes too difficult for us.  We have made it to a restaurant with our eldest recently and would like more opportunities to do so in the future.

If you haven't seen the article already, take a look via the Coventry Telegraph article.
