“Autism Friendly” isn’t enough
Hotels and resorts can ensure a more positive experience for ALL guests by making sure staff are trained and options are available for autistic guests and their family and friends. Making sure that these guests feel welcome and safe opens up new possibilities for families and individuals to have fun and create memories. Earning the CAC designation in order to be able to welcome ALL guests and not only improves the experience for those individuals, but also for staff and other guests.
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 a lack of trained and aware staff. The IBCCES Certified Autism Center (CAC) certification recognizes organizations that have trained staff and are fully equipped to serve the fastest-growing population of developmental disorders and are designated as CACs by a professional credentialing organization with ongoing support for the lifetime of the certification.
