As part of World Autism Awareness Week 2019, Hush Acoustics have sponsored a fundraising drive for the charity Beat Autism.
Based in Wakefield, Beat Autism supports families who have children diagnosed with Autism and is the only charity in the area that offers specialist support.
The links between autism and acoustic systems:
It is now recognised that sound can be a trigger for anyone with Autism; some thrive from noise, but many others struggle with sudden noise or noisy environments and this can be a behavioural trigger for them.
As an organisation that deals with acoustic and sound insulation, Children with Autism is of particular interest to us. For example, it can be very difficult for children with Autism to have a positive educational experience if the acoustics within the school are not correct.
Hush recognise the value of ensuring acoustics within schools and the home are at optimal levels; guaranteeing that all children get the best learning and living environments possible.
They believe that by helping with this charity and spreading the word about the importance of room acoustics for people living with Autism, we will be able to offer support, insight and advice on the best solutions for unwanted noise issues.
Beat Autism charity event & fundraiser:
The Beat Autism charity event launched on Saturday 30th April and acted as a starting pistol for a week of specialised events in support of the charity and to raise awareness of autism across the region.
The event was a great success and included five sponsored teams doing a 20-mile charity walk with a total of 75 challenges en route – including the Hush Acoustic sponsored team, ‘Winealot Ladies’
Beat Autism founder, Sharon said: “We have been planning this event for a long time and we wanted it to be crazier than ever. We made up a series of challenges that were fun and engaged both the teams and the public. It was such a special day and we’re very grateful to Hush Acoustics for their support.”
