The Irish Society for Autism provides Autism Cards which may be of assistance.
These cards aim to provide information to members of the public if needed, and in addition the Autism Alert Card allows for emergency contact details to be noted, should a child/person with Autism become separated from their families or care giver.
If you are requesting one of our Autism Cards, please specify which card you would like and your postal address.
Please see the below images of the front and back of each card;
Covid-19 Face Mask Card
Some people with Autism may be unable or find it difficult to wear a face mask or covering. As per Government Guidelines, any person who has special needs and who may feel upset or very uncomfortable wearing a face covering, is not required to wear one. This card may be of assistance to some. To request a card, please contact us via our contact form or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a postal address.
Please note the Irish Society for Autism Face Mask Card does not automatically entitle the holder to an exemption from wearing a face covering/mask. Please refer directly to Government guidelines for further information.
