Traveling for the holidays? Here are some tips.

Traveling for the holidays can be stressful with long lines, delays and unanticipated changes to plans. The Autism Speaks blog has a helpful post that gives parents simple strategies and tips for preparing both the individual with autism and airline personnel so that the trip goes as smoothly as possible. Check out the section on the Autism Speaks site called Travel Tips for Individuals with Autism and Their Families for even more information. Kathy Labosh has written two practical booklets that are filled with hints and tips on how to travel both in the community and to Florida with a child with autism.

Do you travel or fly with your child? If so, how do you prepare? Any helpful hints for other parents who are planning a trip?

Our Difflearn blog was created specifically for sharing. Here, we’ll collaborate with trusted professionals and parents to share experiences, concerns, new and exciting products and events and best of all, our collective treasure of information. It is our hope that you will find the information posted here helpful, practical, and interesting and that it will help all of us – especially our children – learn and grow. And this is just the beginning…We hope that professionals and parents who have advice, information or a story to share will contact us and submit thoughts and ideas for blog posts. We intend for this to be a true community and all who are interested in the education of our ASD children are invited to participate.
