Wednesday 4 April 2012: Autism Alert Cards

Scottish Autism and Central Scotland Police have teamed up to launch a new autism awareness initiative in Central Scotland aimed at developing a greater understanding of autism in public services. The new Autism Alert Card enables those who carry it to identify themselves as being on the autism spectrum. The card highlights how the bearer may have difficulties in talking and listening and may show signs of unusual behaviour. It also includes a named contact who can offer their support to help police, ambulance, hospital and other key public service professionals better understand the individual's autism needs.
