Autism Berkshire manages the Berkshire Autism Alert Card scheme on behalf of the Berkshire Autism Alert Card Working Group.
The cards should be carried at all times and can be shown if the individual finds themselves in a situation where they cannot easily explain their behaviour.
The card gives some simple advice, the person’s name and emergency contact details. It will help those presented with a card, how to help the card holder and it will also assist you in identifying that you are dealing with someone with autism.
The cards are available free of charge to anyone with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Condition (subject to supporting documentation being sent, please see application form below).
