As the industry leader in Autism training and certification, our international exposure to teachers and licensed healthcare professionals gives us direct access to parents all over the globe. While a lot of research shows us that travel is one of the most intellectually stimulating events for individuals on the spectrum, there are very few travel options for parents. Our goal with Autism Travel is to help the leading travel destinations in the world create safe sensory friendly certified travel options for parents and individuals on the spectrum. Autism Travel will also provide parents with a community to share ideas, plan trips with other families and explore travel options at some of the most beautiful places in the world.
Let Us Help You
We know that your family faces enormous challenges every day: Multiple Therapy Sessions, Challenging School Schedules, Health Insurance or just getting through the day. As a result, many individuals with autism and their families do not travel because they are concerned with the changes and disruptions in routines that traveling today requires. As a parent of an individual on the spectrum you can be assured that the destinations featured on Autism Travel have completed an in-depth training and certification program that is second to none. The organizations we work with are truly committed to improving the quality of life for both the parents and the individual on the spectrum.
Taking a vacation together, as a family, can be one of the bigger challenges and we are here to help you turn that challenge around so that you can have a memorable and enjoyable vacation.
