"We've all received it... the stare. The old coot giving you a dirty look in the frozen food section of the grocery store just 'cause your kid has decided it's the perfect place to demonstrate how loud he can scream. Well, you don't have to fume... just hand them one of these handy cards. The Autism Society of Manitoba is one of the organizations that hands out these cards... we've adopted the idea so you can use it as well. The pictures on this page give you an idea of what the card says. Go to this site (click here) to see a version you can print, cut, fold, and hand out in quiet response to the world's ignorance."
