Autism Talk - A Visual Communication Tool


The AutismTalk App gives law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS personnel that extra tool needed in responding to a call or an emergency situation regarding an individual with autism.

The AutismTalk App is a Picture symbol supported communication and interactive app which allows 1st responders to be able to start communicating quickly and providing help to someone who is nonverbal that has autism or other special needs.

Every 1st responder from law-enforcement to firefighters and EMS personnel will come in contact with someone on the autism spectrum at least once in their career. By 1st responders having the AutismTalk app it will allow them to communicate quickly with someone who is nonverbal or has difficulty speaking and with 50% of individuals on the autism spectrum being non-verbal and the other 20% becoming non-verbal when they are stressed, afraid, hurt or injured the AutismTalk app is a must have for all 1st responders.
