AUTISM ALERT - free printable

I am blessed that in our home autism has not significantly compromised the safety of our family members, but many families with an autistic loved one have to make plans for emergencies.

One thing I'd not really thought about was alerting emergency responders to the fact that a person with autism is present.

The more I think about it, the more I can see how essential it would be to be able to let a police officer entering your home know that a person with autism lives there. That they may not respond to verbal commands. They may be non-compliant THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN.

I think about the urgency of letting responders to a car accident know that an  person with autism may have been in the car. That they may resist help, or they might have run away and be hiding in nearby bushes or buildings.

I have seen alerts available, most requiring ordering ( & payment) and shipping.

I have made a free printable and I am more than happy for you to share it far and wide, sharing is caring xxx

I have made two sizes, one that is about half the size of a piece of A4 paper, perfect for putting at the front door to alert visitors and a smaller version that could go in a car window without obstructing driving vision. Print them out and laminate them. 

Given with love x


  1. What a wonderful gesture !!!

    Me xox

    1. Thanks Me , I hope you have a lovely weekend too x

  2. That is a smart idea! I've never had to deal with anything like this but I think a printable like this would be helpful to many families and services that come into the home.

    1. Hi Rebecca, I hadn't ever thought about the situation until a page on Facebook that I follow was talking about getting some bulk ordered. Things like this should be FREE (in my opinion) x Thanks for visiting

  3. Wow - that is a brilliant idea (and had never occurred to me).

    1. Thanks Lydia, this isn't my idea, but I would hate for someone to put of getting one as they have to pay for it, when I can give it free.
