“Noise and sensory is a big thing hence don’t travel in public transport. Children don’t like it either. Possible quiet place on the bus? If no, impossible when busy or advertising to say there could be passengers with sensory issues?”

“My son needs a learning mentor to assist him in all challenges where he finds himself in a sensory environment and social interaction.”
