The Autism Friendly Initiative has launched an autism support checklist (ASC), which is a tool designed to collect information about a patient’s unique communication style, triggers, safety concerns, and de-escalation strategies.

Information from the ASC is entered into a patient’s electronic medical record (EMR) so that clinicians and staff can provide optimal support, regardless of any prior relationship with a patient.

If you, or someone you care for, are a BMC patient and would like an ASC completed, please contact us at or 617-414-3842.
