'Relaxed' theatre for autistic children
12 April 2013 Last updated at 08:27 BST
Special "relaxed performances" of children's theatre shows, adapted for children on the autistic spectrum, are being put on in several playhouses across the UK.
Subdued lighting, quieter sound and a chill-out area outside the auditorium are just some of the changes making the performances easier for the children to handle.
