Delfont Mackintosh Theatres knows that communication is KEY.
We want all our patrons to have a good experience while in our theatres, so we now have a visual tool for parents and carers to use with children and adults on the autistic spectrum and/or with learning difficulties.
We have been researching the benefits of using social stories and would like to offer a social story for a visit to Noël Coward Theatre. We know that people with autism find social situations difficult and understand that we are all unique.
