Visiting a hospital, health centre or other clinical setting can create anxiety for an autistic child or young person. It is an unfamiliar environment with new and unexpected sensory input. 

There will also be uncertainty about what will happen or how long the wait time will be. 

Health professionals can support autistic children and young people by making simple 

modifications to the environment, routine and their style of communication.
