Today we wanted to share a helpful tool when planning for care related to possible COVID-19 related treatment or hospitalization.  The Autism COVID-19 Individual Health Action Plan was created to assist individuals with autism to assess and plan for what to do if there is concern about COVID-19 infection. The tool is available in a few languages and can be modified individuals not on the autism spectrum. The tool is broken down into the following sections:


SECTION ONE:

  • Do I have any Symptoms of COVID-19?
  • Am I in a priority group?
  • My notes

SECTION TWO:

  • How I can contact my GP (Doctor)?
  • Who and How I contact people if I need help

SECTION THREE:

  • Your important information

SECTION FOUR:

  • How I communicate

SECTION FIVE:

  • Emergency Bag checklist in case I need to go to the hospital.
