The cards were developed in consultation with adults with autism and parents of autistic children to tell people about the condition and ask them to show respect and tolerance. The cards provide information about autism, some simple advice and space for emergency contact details.

Autism Alert Card

Cardholders are asked if they want their details held by police, so that if they report, witness, or are involved in an incident, officers will be alerted to the fact that the person has autism, allowing them to respond to the situation accordingly.
