Happy Autism Awareness—or Autism Acceptance—Month! April is the month to wear blue to support people living with autism, and their families, who often take a substantial role in their care and wellbeing, depending on the circumstance and the level of independence an adult with autism is able to achieve.
The characteristics of autism are ones that often affect a person’s ability to communicate, how they socialize with others, and how they behave. These characteristics can range from mild to severe depending on the person and may make everyday situations require adaptation or be very difficult for children and adults with autism.
As everyday situations can be difficult to manage, an emergency situation can be even more so. For instance, a person with autism who is generally “high-functioning” and able to be independent and communicate well with others, may shut down during periods of high stress or anxiety, such as an emergency. This is why medical ID is important for both children and adults with autism.
Why children with autism need to wear medical ID jewelry
Why adults with autism need to wear medical ID jewelry
It may be difficult to get a child or adult with autism to wear medical ID jewelry in the form of a bracelet or necklace due to sensory challenges with how these items feel against the skin. A medical ID sports band or autism alert key chain attached to a shoe or belt loop may be a solution that can provide some extra security for people with autism and their families. Our medical alert key chains and medical id dog tags/dog tag keychains are now available in more colours than ever including orange, pink, purple, silver, and yellow!
Wearing autism medical ID jewelry can help keep a loved one with autism safe. If you support someone with autism, consider showing your support with our autism awareness keychain, which can be custom engraved—you could use it alongside a medical alert charm, or simply to honour your loved one with autism by engraving their name on the reverse!
