Wings For AutismThe Autism Site
Families with a child on the spectrum don’t always get to travel or may not even travel at all due to the stress travel can put on their child. But Alaska Airlines gives these families a chance to practice what it’s like to travel with a child on the spectrum with their Wings For Autism Program.
An event where families can go through the motions of traveling to the airport, they and their child will get familiar with what it’s like to travel by plane. Alaska Airlines not only believes this will benefit families with a child with autism, but it will also familiarize their staff as to what kinds of symptoms they should look out for with a child on the spectrum.
