Autism Friendly Travel
What an incredible journey I has gone through as I worked through the IBCCES Certification program to specialize in autism related needs and accommodations specifically related to travel.
As a Certified Autism Travel Professional™ (CATP), I am professional travel advisor who has demonstrated that I am both knowledgeable and capable of providing support and travel related services to an individual on the autism spectrum as well as their family.
I was inspired to become certified by my daughter Julianna who is a Special Educational Teacher in McKinney Texas. She passionately wakes every day and works with children with autism every day and inspired me to learn more about what she does. Families with children on the spectrum are not likely (nearly 90%) to take the family on a vacation due to Their lack of comfort with the location or cruise ship. With selected preparation and assistance at their destination the family can now enjoy a bonding holiday together, just like all of their friends and neighbors.
