Emergency Visual Cards for Children having Autism/Communication Difficulties
The emergency visual cards are helpful in teaching children with communication difficulties how to communicate during an emergency. These images can be made into laminated cards which can be used by Firefighters, Police and/or Paramedics to help anyone with communication difficulties during an emergency. These cards can help people of all ages who have difficulty communicating: eg. speech delays, Autism, Down`s Syndrome, Angelman`s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Aquired Brain Injury, Strokes, Parkinson`s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, etc.
The Emergency Visual Communication Cards can be laminated with Vecro attached and stored in a binder or mini-binder. These laminated cards can be put on a key chain / carabineer which can attach to a belt loop for easy portability.
