“Autism Friendly” just isn’t good enough

The learning, thinking and problem-solving abilities of people with ASD can range from gifted to severely challenged.

Research has shown that engaging and stimulating activities such as travel, animals and water interaction, and outdoor play are therapeutic for children and individuals with ASD.

Organizations across the globe claim to be “Autism friendly” but are not equipped to truly accommodate these guests. This has left families disappointed due to lack of trained and aware staff. As a result, destinations and other organizations have little to no credibility in this ever-growing market.
