Autistic Decals on Cars?
What do you think about this idea? A man in Texas is pushing for decals to be manufactured and provided for drivers who are on the autism spectrum. This, he says, will give police and emergency officials the information they need to make appropriate decisions based on the individual's specific needs. For more information, click here. I personally think that this is a good idea because, if a high functioning individual with autism is pulled over, for whatever reason, the pressure of the situation could trigger a meltdown. This would give law enforcement officials the necessary information they need to know that their own safety is not compromised. There should also be training in place for law enforcement officials so that they know how to react to a situation such as that. The same with fire fighters and emergency respond personnel. These are my thoughts on this idea. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
