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?
