Handmade (by WillowHope), an Autism Awareness ribbon lanyard with the Autistic Spectrum Alert Card attached in a plastic holder, so you can show your support for Autism wherever you are as well as carrying your card in case you need it!
From the top of the ribbon to the bottom of the clasp, it measures approximately 52cm, and a further 8cm for the card in it's holder. There is enough space before the keyring to customize it with a button badge.
Comes with a breakaway fastening for safety.
Ribbon has been carefully burnt at the ends to prevent fraying.
Autism/Aspergers Alert Card
The idea is that if you get a bit overwhelmed or you aren't able to get your point across etc, when you're out and about in public, you can hand this card over and it will just go some way to explain why you're flapping and struggling to breathe! It's also very useful from a safety and security point of view for places like airports/train stations and big cities, and to show to police etc.
As you can see, it's got the WillowHope colour scheme etc, so it's not dull. I tried to make it a bit more 'funky' etc. than the usual ones.
The card is the size and thickness of a credit/debit card, made entirely from plastic, with a gloss finish, so will be durable.
"I have an Autistic Spectrum DisorderPlease read the back of this card......thank you, I really appreciate it!"
"Please take the time to understand that...
- I might struggle to tell you what I need because I can become easily overwhelmed in a social or public environment.
- It might seem like I am acting strange but the movements I make are probably just part of me trying to cope and stay calm.
- I don't like to be touched, most of all unexpectedly, so whilst it might be your reaction to help calm me down, it will likely make things worse.
- I am a unique human being and deserve the respect you show everyone else.Also...don’t take advantage of me. I’m not stupid, I’m just anxious."
Usually, from the time you place your order, it can take up to 3 days for me to make the item, then I will pack it up with stickers etc. and ship out to you 1st class, which can take up to 3 days depending on the time of posting, or maybe a little longer for locations outside of the UK, so please keep this in mind if you are wanting to know where your order is! Thank you for understanding.
