Autism Card?

Recommended Posts

Frankie

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 a bright neon colour would be good, I made prototype's of an updated version of the card up top of page, I also bought neon paper & folded it around a card to see how it looks, turned out great :D

 

 

I copied & updated the police bit, but that could just be another logo or something

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.

Don't forget the postage! :P

meant to say, the neon pink looks the best for card to get noticed & not lost, but think some of the guys would have issues with the colour

Those three sentences describe it almost perfectly  :)

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'd say so... It's probably cheap enough for someone to laminate theirs at the Post Office or something, if they feel they needed to.

Someone made me a laminated version of a card trying to help but they were too big :(

I think they would be more useful for people with more noticeable problems. I've never had one nor felt the need. The only times one would have almost been useful is when I got the impression that I had come across slightly rudely in my local shop where I go often, but I'd like to think that I can buy a few items in a shop without having to bring my AS to their attention. If I had panic attacks in a shop or railway station etc then it could be useful but I'm not affected that way. I know though that some Aspies do get into situations where it would help if people knew why certain behaviour had taken place.

Yes more useful for someone with more obvious problems or Autistic children. Even I've not really used mine much, my mum wouldn't want to bring Autism into it unless it was a big issue, I know when I was little we other things like this and used more often. 

I really worry about getting separated from my mum in a supermarket and I might appear like I'm worried and if someone speaks to me I might not reply so that might be a situation I would show it... if I remember. A few times I've showed it when paying for things in shops when I was a teenager and one time on a bus when I was having a panic attack and another time in a train station.

Yes, I never had to use a card as yet. Although having one in the wallet is probably a good idea. Willow if you make some, I'd be interested.

If you make them on coloured paper then you should chose the green one.

 

The reason for that is that all other colours (red, orange and yellow) are "Alert" colours. Alert colours are meant to scare people to keep away from something or stop doing something. They symbolize Danger. We don't want people to be afraid, we want them to pay attention. The green one symbolizes calmness to most people.  "No danger, but please read this."

 

At least that's how I would chose. :)
