I know I am not the only one who are wondering WTF is it with those Color Communication Badges MFF will be offering.
The idea of them goes all the way back to 2014 when the Autistic Self Advocacy Network promoted the idea. That was created by Autism Network International.
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is proud to announce the release of a new technical assistance document describing the use of color communication badges. Color Communication Badges are an accommodation to support social interaction for people with a variety of disabilities and communication needs. Color communication badges were first developed by Autism Network International, and popularized by the Autistic community in Autistic spaces and conferences.
Color Communication Badges offer those who use them an opportunity to communicate explicitly the degree to which they want to participate in new social interactions and with who. They offer a universally designed way of making a conference, university, event or other space more accessible to those who may not find typical nonverbal social cues accessible. Many non-disabled people report that this system also benefits them too.
