OrlandoVacation.com Becomes Certified Autism Center

OrlandoVacation.com has earned the Certified Autism Center designation and is only the second vacation home rental organization to do so in the country.

The Certified Autism Center (CAC) designation demonstrates the organization’s commitment to ensuring individuals and families with children on the autism spectrum have the best possible experience when traveling. Parents with children on the spectrum often find vacationing and visiting new places to be a challenge due to sensory needs, dietary restrictions and safety concerns. With this certification, guests can rest assured staff are prepared to help all families, regardless of their needs.

The CAC designation is awarded by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). For almost 20 years, IBCCES has been the industry leader in autism training for licensed healthcare professionals and educators around the globe. IBCCES recognized that many families with children with special needs have limited travel options and created programs specifically for the hospitality and travel industry.

“We at OrlandoVacation.com are very excited that we can help make a family’s dream come true that they may not have thought possible before. All families have different needs, and our vacation specialists take the time to answer questions and find the best accommodations in Orlando for a stress free vacation,” says Trey Duling, President of OrlandoVacation.com.

OrlandoVacation.com has great deals for Orlando hotels and vacation homes around Walt Disney World. Best seller is Walt Disney World and Universal Studios packages bundling your lodging with discounted tickets to all of major theme parks in Orlando. Tickets can be delivered to your hotel or vacation home avoiding lines.

In recent years, the popularity of “autism-friendly” options has grown; however, parents and families often seek out organizations that have completed additional research-based training or become certified to ensure their needs can be met. While research shows that new experiences such as travel are some of the most intellectually stimulating events for individuals on the spectrum, there are still few trained and certified options for families looking for organizations who have a specific understanding of how to work with those families.

“Our mission is to ensure there are a variety of trained and certified options for families with children on the spectrum, or even adults.  Everyone, no matter what their needs are, deserves to have an amazing experience when they travel and to have peace of mind that they will be welcomed and accommodated,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman. “Our Certified Autism Center designation is awarded to organizations who have made a commitment to serving those with special needs and have undergone a rigorous program.”

IBCCES also created AutismTravel.com, a free online resource for parents that lists certified destinations and connects families to other resources and each other. Each destination listed on the site has met Certified Autism Center requirements, which requires that guest-facing staff complete a training program, among other requirements.
