NSW Government to approve Autism Alert Card

This petition had 168 supporters

A serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact.
Autism spectrum disorder impacts the nervous system.
The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely. Common symptoms include difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests and repetitive behaviours.
Early recognition, as well as behavioural, educational and family therapies may reduce symptoms and support development and learning.

As a mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum, and recently finding out that Western Australia has had this card approved, I feel this would benefit many families on the spectrum.

Im constantly seeing police and emergency services on video arrest Teenagers, Children and adults on the spectrum as they are unaware of their disability and unsure of why they are behaving strangely. 

I feel this will also help emergency services being ambulances and Firefighters be aware when attending an emergency if the behaviour is Autism related or a state of shock or injury. 

Please help me to sign this petition and have NSW approve and activate the Autism Alert Card.
