The Emergency Chat App

The Emergency Chat app was created by an Autistic computer science student and it's seriously the best thing since sliced bread.

It's useful for any time you would prefer to use written communication over verbal. Open the app and a screen with a message you have customized appears. You can hand your phone to someone to have them read the message. Once they read it, they press "continue" and an internal chat applet opens up. Passing the phone back and forth you can chat within it.

You can find it on Facebook here:

It's available for free for Android and iOS!

Here's a screenshot of the text I wrote for my version:

You can customize it for any time you may be non-verbal - asthma, allergy attacks, seizures, anxiety - whatever your needs are.
