Autistic Spectrum Alert Card With Diary Bundle

WillowHope

Please select colour at top right.

A faux leather, 2017 pocket diary with a window in the front to fit your alert card. Useful for carrying in a handbag or in your pocket, so you can keep track of your commitments and remind yourself what you need to do that day, as well as having a space to store your alert card, incase you need it. 

Diary measures 11cm by 7.5cm. It has a week per double page spread. Also, in the back there is a notes section where you could maybe keep track of any appointments for the following year (I know my referrals in the past used to be several months waiting time, and I would forget about them). In the front there is a page for your personal information and emergency contact, which could be useful in a situation when you've used your alert card. Lots of useful information in the front as well, which are all things I tend to forget: public holidays (UK), conversion tables and info about clothing sizes and weights.

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 and is easy to store in the diary or in your purse/wallet or even in an ID card lanyard.

Text reads:

Front:
"I have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Please read the back of this card...
...thank you, I really appreciate it!"
Back:
"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."

 

*PLEASE NOTE*

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.
