I've always had a hard time with medic alert jewelry for autism. We just got some shoe tags and a dog tag for my backpack that should arrive in the mail in about a week. Please only select the options you actually own and use. I'd like to see what other people have. And if you have something that isn't listed, please select that and post what it is you use.

I have a bracelet and wallet card.

The bracelet is black cord that can loosen or tighten easily on my wrist. The metal plate is black and silver with the Medic Alert symbol on top and "Autism - Communication Difficulties underneath, along with a registration number and another number that looks like a phone number.

The wallet card has a lot of details on it including all the medication I take, who to contact in case of emergency and my doctor's details.

I haven't had to use them as such but feel better about having them in case of emergency.

I have a necklace and wallet card. I have several medical things other than autism that emergency services need to know about so they don't accidentally make things worse which they have done in the past.

I have a card. And I like the idea of a tag that latches to a zipper pull since I always wear zipper hoodies. I want that now plus the card.

How creative!

I bought my card from a nonprofit organization created by a detective and a physician ( http://www.gocit.org/care-cards.html ). It is the same quality as most government-issued cards.

But, as with all alert IDs, it is always best to ask law-enforcement officers if you may show them your card or tag before actually reaching for them.

I like the idea of the zipper tags. Like EzraS, I wear various hoodies when it is cold.

I have a bracelet that is silver and engraved with my information on it, but I rarely wear it. I know I should, but I just don't like the way it feels on my wrist.

EDIT: Mine is actually for my seizure disorder, not for my Autism.

It can be worn on the neck or wrist but I wear it on my neck. It also has GPS and my medical information on it.

It is not for autism but if I I fall from residual balance issues from my stroke and Ramsey Hunt Syndrome(Ear Shingles)

I use a dog tag which says on one side "person with autism may not respond to verbal commands". It's mainly for my severe dyspraxia (if I am in a new situation I can freeze physically for several seconds, unable to respond). I keep it on my backpack, which I carry sensory items in.
