Communication: I am Autistic. I struggle to speak or understand spoken information in a loud, or crowded environment. I need extra time to process verbal information, and may need to respond in writing to questions rather than speaking. If possible, I would prefer to be taken to a quiet place.
Heart: I have a heart condition, and may need to suddenly sit or lie down if my heart rate is too high. I need to be left alone (not moved, touched, or spoken to) until my heart recovers. I carry emergency medications in my bag, and may need water to take them. Please do not call an ambulance or emergency services unless I specifically request it, as these episodes generally pass quickly.
Mobility: I struggle to stand or walk for more than a few minutes at a time. I need a place to sit if I am not using my wheelchair.
