Speaking as both a travel agent and parent of a child with autism, this program is absolutely amazing! This is the real deal, IBCCES has left no stone unturned, they have thought of everything. Combining my two passions of travel and special needs, I’m thrilled to help families travel successfully when they didn’t think it was possible.
