Our Autism Alert Card’s have been designed to enable those who carry it, to identify themselves as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder and to alert the police and other emergency services when required.
Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, may present unusually to those without an understanding of autism.
This card will alert the emergency services that the card holder may have difficulty communicating and may appear anxious in unfamiliar surroundings or exhibit behaviour which, to the unaware, may seem strange and could be misinterpreted.
It also includes a named contact, who can offer their support to help police, ambulance, hospital and other key public service professionals, to better understand the individual’s autism needs. The card is likely to be of most benefit to those who access the community independently, but could be helpful for those who usually have the support of a carer or parent, particularly if they were lost. It is available to all ages.
