Travel is stressful in general but can be particularly difficult for families who have a child with special needs. Wings for Autism events are a “test run” through the airport boarding process–specifically designed for families who have a child with an autism spectrum disorder.
Families are able to practice:
• Entering the airport
• The check-in process and checking bags
• Security screening
• Boarding the plane
• Preparing for take-off
• Exiting the plane
Children and their families gain real life, air travel experience–sometimes finding that more practice is necessary but often discovering that air travel is indeed possible!
Check-in and boarding times begin at 9 am and will be held throughout the morning. Specific times will be assigned closer to the date of the event. Questions? Please contact: [email protected]
Wings for Autism was created by the Charles River Center, a chapter of The Arc located in Needham, MA, in collaboration with the Mass Port Authority and TSA. This is the 11th Wings event at Logan Airport. Since 2011, thousands of families have participated, and Wings events are now taking place in 22 cities across the country.
