Wings for Autism
ATW teams up with Wings for Autism to provide the experience of going to an airport, checking in at the airline counter, going through security, boarding the plane, and collecting baggage at the conclusion of a trip. This can be a helpful process for children with Autism to help reduce stress and anxiety by familiarizing them with the various steps taken when flying.

“We have twins on the spectrum and both completely opposite. Our daughter can’t handle too much sensory input whereas our son needs a lot of sensory input. This event really gave us an idea on how both children would respond to the process of air travel. It also gave our kids a mental picture of what to expect with air travel…” – Jacqueline Braemer
