App Store - Autism 5-Point Scale EP - 0 views

  • The Autism Help App assists individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other disabilities to communicate in emergency situations. Utilizing the 5 Point Scale, individuals can easily communicate their level of anxiety and needs in a high stress situation without the need to be verbal. Autism Help levels are color-coded with different facial expressions. Each level of the emergency increases as the numbers get higher. For example, choosing a “1” may mean that “I have a scratch on my leg and need a band-aid.” Choosing a “3” may mean “I have a headache and need to use my relaxation exercises.” Choosing a “5” may mean “I’m lost and can’t find my parents!
