Suggested Questionnaire for Healthcare and Related Professionals – please share widely

[Update!! Those who want a tool similar to this can download one for free from http://autismandhealth.org/%5D

I have heard many complaints from autistic people and other people with disabilities about their struggles in communicating with healthcare professionals, etc.. I propose a simple questionnaire for professionals to use. These would be standard intake questions, and the answers would be put at the front of the patient/client’s chart.

If you like this idea, please take this quick online survey!!!

If I get enough positive feedback, I will try to make this tool become a reality. I don’t know how, but I will try. Please help me spread the word.

    Hi Restless – I forwarded this to the VP of Student Affairs at the med school my husband goes to. Also tweeted it. Can I add it to the Autistikids.com website? Thanks!

    I only regret that we didn’t have this on Thursday. My son had his annual physical and it was a disaster. this would have helped.

      Sorry to hear that! For future reference, the nonprofit organization Aaspire has created a downloadable tool like this, available here: http://autismandhealth.org/
