Autism Card?

Recommended Posts

Frankie

I had a perfect autism card that had 3 key points on it & REALLY helped me when I was talking to someone new who doesn't know about my AsPie, like for example at a ticket office or something, I could show card & they'll be a bit more understanding & helpful to me & helps me get out what needs to be said so other person understands.

 

Iv been having difficulty trying to get a new card, someone gave me one in a plastic wallet with lots of paper info but no one will want to take time to read all that plus the thing burst my actual wallet because it was too big! The one I lost was the same type as a bank card & liked it because it fitted into my wallet perfectly & had them 3 key points on it. I'll attach a picture of one the same as what I had.

 

Does anyone know how I can get another one?  I already emailed ScottishAutism.org about card but they never reply'd, I'm sure my card number was between 100 & 200, something like 158 I think? can't remember, I should be on their records because they gave me a proper plastic card a few years ago.

 

I feel the card was a life saver & need new one!

 

I think if the card was in a neon colour like neon pink or yellow they might not get lost as easy.

Hi, The only one that I can think of which may or may not be useful for you is the Autism Card from the National Autistic society. I have attached a picture of it below and here's the link to order it,

Iv got that one but its useless, its on a plastic wallet thing with paper bits inside with too much detail for people to read & they'll less likely read it. The white card I had before got straight to the point, fitted into my wallet & because it was plastic it wouldn't fall apart

I have that NAS one but yes it's not very good and not to the point and I've got a Scottish Autism one as well that is better and has my name and address on it too. I don't know how I got it but my mum is a member of Scottish Autism so maybe it's because of that. They might email you back after Christmas.
I don't really use it much, sometimes my mum has used it in shops for me if there's a concession or something, but rarely.

I'm going to be designing and making these in the New Year. I can't afford to do it for free, but they'll only be like...50p or something cheap like that. They'll be the quality of the Honorary Member Cards, so to anyone who has one of those, do you think that's good enough quality?

I found out I emailed the wrong email address when I went onto the Autism site when I started this topic

What quality are the Honorary Members Cards? Are they like plastic bank card type cards? Paper ones bother me coz they get damaged too easy

They're coated card. So no not bank card quality. I'd struggle to afford that :(

 

I could technically do it, but I'd have a bigger initial outlay. So we'll have to see.

Yay! :) That will be prettier.  Yes that's good enough quality, they are great.

the three sentences on the one up at the top of this is quite good idea.

I think they would probably be ok but it goes for anything really nothing lasts forever. If you put it in a credit card holder if thats the size then that would protect it maybe it could be laminated. Either way if the costs fifty pence and with reasonable care it should last a year or so at least so fifty pence every 12 to 18 months isnt an unreasonable ask is it.
