Autistic children can experience a high base level of anxiety which can hinder them going about their day to day activities.  Whilst Huggable Heroes cannot take this away,  having a Hero of a loved one can offer a calming influence; whether it be of a parent , pet, sibling or even a best friend.  Huggable Heroes can be incorporated into every day routines and taken along on excursions and outings to provide familiarity, which can be fantastic for those with Autism.
