‘Quiet room’ now open at Northland Shopping Centre

Northland Shopping Centre has opened up a ‘quiet room’ for individuals with autism. Built entirely by local volunteers and businesses and led by a passionate committee with most members having been personally touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the pioneering ‘Quiet Room’ concept has been introduced in a bid to give the 55,000 Victorians affected by ASD a positive shopping experience. The room offers access to power supplies, sensory soothing items, bean bags and other useful materials to help reduce over-stimulation.
