Autism Awareness Month: FREE Coping Cards


April is Autism Awareness Month and we believe that together we can make a world more comfortable for those with autism with patience and awareness. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, we have created FREE printable and pocket-sized coping cards for your kiddos to take along with them everywhere. When they're feeling overwhelmed or angry, they can just pull out their coping cards and go through them until they calm down. If you are the parent to an autistic child or are autistic yourself, we hope you find these printable coping cards helpful and comforting. Autism makes it hard for those on the spectrum to communicate with the world around them. If we just remain open minded and patient, parenting an autistic child is easy as 1 2 and 3. Keep reading to download our free printable coping cards.




These coping cards are designed for your spectrum kiddo to have with them at all times, so they always know what to do in uncomfortable situations. They're pocket sized so they can take it with them to school or anywhere else they go! Below is what the first page will look like when you print it out. It even has cutting guides so your coping cards can be extra organized and clean.





Examples of some of the Coping Skills in the cards:

►Read the closest thing to you slowly
►Take a bath or shower
►Write a letter to your bestfriend
►Count to 10
►Play with clay or playdough
►Ask for a hug
►Write a story
►Stretch as high as you can

And more!


Printing Notes:

Remember to print only on one side. There are 9 pages!

You can use regular printer paper, but we recommend using cardstock so it's more durable and lasts longer

►Make sure the printing size is set to "Actual Size" or 100%

►Make sure to print in color if that's what you prefer!
