Emergency chat can be used in any situation where speech is impossible but communication is still necessary.

The splash screen has a base text that explains to the person you gave your phone to that you can't use speech and want to use this app to communicate. The default text is aimed at people experiencing an autistic meltdown, where their speech centres stay non-functional for a while even after they've recovered.
Both the title and text can be adjusted in the settings screen to be whatever you want the person you give your phone to know.

You can then continue to the next screen which has a simple chat client.

Perfect - simple and flexible

Short and to the point. Allows me to advance-plan the most important information I want to tell someone else if I am having an autism meltdown. Forward planning like this is so important as I become minimally functional when heavily sensory overloaded. Even if I'm unable to have a 2 way conversation, I can now convey my primary need with two swift simple operations. Thank you.

Thank you


Thanks for creating such a brilliantly simple app. I haven't used it in a meltdown yet but, having used pen and paper before to give instructions, I imagine this will be useful in telling people what to do to help.

Really useful !


This is super helpful when I have seizures n panic attacks ! Thank you for creating this ♡
