Launch of National Assistance Card – Autism trial in Tasmania

This new card makes it much easier for autistic people to communicate their strengths and challenges; and critically – the type of understanding and assistance they may need in everyday community life situations.
Autistic people are invited to design their own card  and to use it when and how they choose.  The card can include information about a person’s unique strengths and challenges. The types of information can be shared with others as written on their card or accessed by QR code, such as video-stories or other documents.  It is also about feeling safer in the community too, with options to include a contact person. The options are wide. Autistic Tasmania is glad to be trialing this in Tasmania for the autistic community.
Autism Tasmania invites you to participate in this trail.  Please follow this link to learn more.
