Autism - Make it Stop

The National Autistic Society (NAS) has unveiled the latest iteration of its 'Too Much Information' campaign, which stars a 12-year-old autistic girl called Holly.

The 'Make It Stop' spot depicts Holly going through her day and becoming overwhelmed when she isn't given enough time to process information. As part of the process the schoolgirl led an assembly for classmates to screen the film and open up a dialogue about her day-to-day experiences.

More than 1 in 100 people are on the autistic spectrum, with those diagnosed often finding social situations difficult and struggle to filter out the sounds, smells, sights and information they experience, leading to sensory overload.
