[ARCHIVED] Car signs alert police to passengers with autism

Autism Decal

The South Fayette Township Police Department is offering car magnets and decals indicating that a person with autism is aboard. The signs alert first responders such as police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians that a vehicle’s occupant may not respond to verbal commands in the expected manner.

Police Chief John Phoennik said all South Fayette police officers have been trained to work with children who have autism.

The free magnets and window clings, supplied by the Kaleidoscope Therapy Center/Autism Open in Washington County, are available at the South Fayette police station, 515 Millers Run Road, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
