First responders, ER doctors, and nurses may lack a sufficient understanding of autism leading them to misinterpret autism-related responses. They may not know how to communicate with or otherwise help an autistic person* cope with painful or scary procedures.
Information can be stored such as:
- How you communicate – Your unique behaviors and triggers – including telling first responders and medical staff how best to respond to make YOU more comfortable
- Important Treatment Information — describe any issues, concerns, and sensitivities that could be vital including ways to reduce your anxiety
- Alert My Emergency Contacts – ICE4Autism can send an emergency alert text message — including your GPS location and a link to your location pinned on Google Maps — to your designated emergency contacts. Parents, spouses, caregivers, and service providers can come to your side, advocate for you and help you through the ordeal.
- Special Instructions – ICE Audio – ICE4Autism can speak for you or your loved one. If you or your loved one is non-verbal or incapacitated due to injury, the simple press of a button plays YOUR pre-recorded message including the most important information about YOU, your sensitivities, unique behaviors and anything else YOU decide is vital to your care.
