Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has put together some resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current Coronavirus outbreak.
Many individuals with autism prefer to use public transportation instead of during their own car or relying on other people to give them a ride to the places they need or want to go. For this reason, it is important to become familiar with mass transit options, and the social rules to follow when using public transportation. These information sheets provide general tips about using mass transit in Pennsylvania as well as specific information about using buses, trains, taxis, and the subway system. There are two sets of resources available for download, one set is text based while the other uses more images and simplified text.
Driving a vehicle can be overwhelming for many adults with ASD. For this reason, it is important to become familiar with mass transit options and the unwritten social rules of mass transit.
