Last year I made some cards up to take to Spain using the information on the NAS website. I've just done some new ones for our trip to France.

I just printed the phrase onto card and cut up - we didn't need them last year but it was handy to have them on us just in case!

Taken from the NAS website:-

French

My son is not being naughty. He is a child with autism/He is autistic. Please show some understanding.
Ce n'est pas que mon fils n'est pas sage. C'est un enfant autiste/Il est autiste. Veuillez faire preuve de compréhension.

NB. I have something similar in a plastic wallet made for credit cards - I can't speak anymore - so usually use an App on my iphone to communicate - but these are a good back up for when the darn thing runs out !!!
