Berkshire Autism Alert Card

The Berkshire Autism Alert Card is available free of charge to anyone with a formal diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition.

The scheme is managed by Autism Berkshire on behlaf of the alert card working group.

The application form can be downloaded at the link below.

All applications must be accompanied by a copy of documentation showing proof of a diagnosis. Proof can include a diagnosis letter, or a statement letter from a professional, such as a doctor, paediatrician, psychologist, social worker or school, or a medical report or assessment.

The cards should be carried at all times and can be shown if the individual or their parent or carer 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 know how to help the card holder and it will also assist you in identifying that you are dealing with someone with autism.
