Family vacations make memories that last a lifetime. Going to see big shows, theme parks, and new restaurants are so fun for so many! But when you have autism, travel is not easy. Everything is unpredictable, new, and can be quite scary! The great folks over at City Catt have teamed up with IBCCES and making travel easier for autistic children
From personal experience, I can tell you travel can be a nightmare with autistic children! We have learned to accommodate pretty well, but hiccups are bound to happen. When you’ve never been to a place before, it’s pretty hard to prepare your child for it.
Autism on the Go: Making Travel Easier and Fun!
Family vacations should be accessible to all. Now with the help of City Catt’s Autism on The Go program, it is! They are making travel easier for autistic children!
What is Autism on The Go with City Catt?
Your Autism Certified Catt (think expert travel guide with a ton of extra knowledge & care!) will help you find the best autism-friendly places to visit your family. They can even guide you through attractions to make sure you have the best experience possible! Autism on the go is making travel easier for autistic children.
“One thing I’ve learned all these years is to research and prepare myself ahead for all activities and trips. I strongly believe that City Catt will help many families looking for the same things, by giving us access to qualified people who know everything about the cities we’ve been dreaming to explore,” says Viviane Gouvea, whose oldest son has autism and 7q11.23 duplication diagnosis.
