AUTISM FRIENDLY LOCATIONS

You can make these stickers available to families of individuals with autism. The sticker, worn on the clothing of the person with autism, can alert your staff to their special needs.

WHEN COMMUNICATING...

Speak directly to the individual with autism, as you would approach any other customer. Just keep in mind, though, he/ she may not respond.

Autism Friendly Location. We provide individuals with autism an opportunity to be active participants in their communities by fostering a safe and understanding public environment.

Autism Friendly Locations asked us to design a welcome packet for them. They used the packet to send to companies signing on with AFL. These packets included an informational poster, a guide book, identification stickers to be given to autistic children, and window decals to show the place of business is an Autism Friendly Location. This welcome packet set the design for AFL’s brand.

Many individuals with autism are non-verbal or their speech can be hard to understand, so they may communicate through their parents or with communication devices. Be prepared for: • PARENTS ASKING FOR YOUR PATIENCE WHILE THEY HELP THEIR CHILD FIND THE WORDS TO

PLACE THEIR ORDER AT A RESTAURANT

• Being patient while an independent individual enters an appropriate response in the communication device • Giving a parent the take-out menu they request so they can practice ordering food at home

SOCIAL SKILLS

children is diagnosed with autism

Because they have problems with communication, individuals with autism often have difficulties with social interactions. We encourage you and your staff to engage individuals with autism, but don’t be offended if they do not respond or respond inappropriately. To make persons with autism feel more comfortable in social situations, consider the following:

TRY TO...

• MAKE EYE CONTACT; even if the individual doesn’t • Keep appropriate boundaries; even if the person stands too close or far away • Avoid making physical contact with the individual; he/she may be sensitive to touch

Autism is the

FASTEST GROWING SERIOUS

One more thing: Individuals with autism may repeat what you just said. If you ask, “How are you today?,” they may respond with, “How are you today?” Go ahead and answer them. You’ll help them learn the appropriate response.

During stressful and unfamiliar situations, individuals with autism may exhibit unusual or repetitive behaviors. Our hope is that the more times families expose persons with autism to outings in the community, and the more predictable the outings become, the more those undesirable behaviors will fade. • Talk about a topic that interests him/her; even if it has nothing to do with the current situation • Abruptly end the conversation; don’t be offended, it isn’t personal. • EXHIBIT UNUSUAL BEHAVIORS; hand-flapping, foot-tapping, hair-stroking, hand-wringing Environmental issues that can cause behaviors to escalate: • Loud noises • Bright lights • Communication difficulties • Unusual smells • Changing temperatures

IDENTIFICATION OPTIONS Proper identification helps families feel more comfortable and welcome in public places. Once other people are aware of an individual’s disability, the more understanding and helpful they become. • “I’m AOK” lanyard • “I’m AOK” shirt • “I’m AOK” identification sticker

LET’S TALK ABOUT AUTISM.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT AUTISM? Autism is a disability protected by federal law according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) law:

No individual shall be discriminated against on the basis of disability in the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages or accommodations of any place or public accommodation by any person who owns, leases (or leases to), or operates a place of public accommodation.

To encourage individuals with disabilities to be active and independent members of their communities through proper identification, increased education, and recognition of Autism Friendly Locations. To encourage local and national businesses to foster an environment of understanding by increasing awareness of autism and educating staff to effectively communicate and interact with individuals with disabilities.

Artist Carrie O’Dell

• ACKNOWLEDGE THE CHILD’S OR INDIVIDUAL’S AUTISM IDENTIFICATION. Example: “I like your bracelet!” • Offer an autism identification sticker. Alert staff and customers to be understanding of individual’s behaviors and special needs. • Use simple and direct language when talking to an individual with autism. • Allow extra time for an individual with autism to process and respond to a question. • Remember that a person with autism may understand what you say, even if they are non-verbal. • Look to caregiver for help with communication, if needed. • Give caregivers seating options. Booth or table? In a quieter section? Close or far from windows? • Ask caregiver if you can provide any other special accommodations. • Use picture communication cards, if available. • If tantrum occurs, allow caregiver to take the person with autism to a quiet place in the facility

SUPPLIES

lacking We can see this through to completion by giving, advocating and volunteering on behalf of those less fortunate. The road ahead is not an easy one to travel. Economic pressures have resulted in drastic funding cuts to nonprofits such as ours.. More than ever, we count on heroes like you — a select group of friends and neighbors who truly care about the men, women and children of Greater L.A. So many kids like Gabriel are heading back to school with high hopes. We need a surge of support right now to make sure they have the food, shelter and supplies they need to stay strong and finish school. I hope we can count on your help and I thank you for being a champion of this worthy cause!

That’s why United Way of Greater Los Angeles has developed a ten-year action plan focused on tackling the root causes of poverty and we are already making great progress towards fulfilling our goals of ending homelessness, increasing the high school graduation rate and ensuring the financial stability of hardworking Angelenos.

SUPPORT

When we do, everything will change. Their success is our success.

At last count, LAUSD identified 16,000 homeless or transient children. They typically move often, which can be a difficult setback. These children struggle to get their homework done in the back seats of cars, on park benches or in a chaotic shelter environment. Shame and anxiety add to their burden. The average American family spends $688 during the back-to-school season. For the 1 in 5 children in L.A. who live in poverty, that’s far, far out of reach. A scientific calculator alone can cost more than $100. In order to do their best, every student also needs a backpack, clothing and shoes that fit. Homeless and impoverished children face unimaginable peer pressure. Gang members tempt and threaten them into joining their ranks. Older siblings or even parents might offer them drugs or alcohol. Without intervention, they will inevitably find themselves on the path to poverty.

2. SHELTER: 7,600 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HOUSED IN OUR EFFORT TO END CHRONIC AND VETERAN HOMELESSNESS BY 2016.

ONLY 71% OF STUDENTS IN L.A. COUNTY

GRADUATE Homelessness is part of a vicious cycle. United Way of Greater Los Angeles is working to break that cycle.

3. SCHOOL SUPPLIES: “BACKPACK-TO-SCHOOL” EVENTS EQUIP OVER 500 POOR AND AT-RISK CHILDREN FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS.

As the voice of L.A. County, United Way is leading the way towards fulfilling a new vision: a community where poverty and homelessness, failing students and blighted neighborhoods are a thing of the past. It can be done. In fact, we are already seeing amazing results!

4. MENTORING: AFTERSCHOOL TUTORING, PROGRESS TRACKING AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR EDUCATORS TURNS SCHOOLS AROUND.

Our action plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness is not only on track, but ahead of schedule. Thousands of our most vulnerable neighbors have already been housed. Plus, our goal of increasing the County graduation rate to 75% is also well within reach. As students across the region prepare to head back to school, we’re asking for your help. We’re committed to ensuring that children have FOOD, SHELTER and SUPPORT. We’re reaching out to local middle schools because research shows that it’s our last chance to help these kids before it’s too late. If we don’t take action now, then when? If not you, then who? Schools are already starting their new year. Please send in your gift today. Did You Know That In L.A. County: 1 in 5 children lives in poverty? 51,000 people are homeless? Only 61% of LAUSD students graduate? (71% countywide) It’s unacceptable. We can do better! Your gift can help BREAK THE CYCLE for one child.
