The Arc of Arizona is bringing Wings for Autism® back to Sky Harbor in Fall 2015 — and registration is now open! This national program of The Arc offers young people with autism spectrum disorders and other intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD), and their families, a unique “airport rehearsal” designed to ease the uncertainties and discomfort they may feel when traveling by airplane.By simulating each step of a real-life airport process –- parking, check-in and ticketing, TSA security checks, boarding, safety announcements and even taxiing around the runways (everything except actually leaving the ground!) –- Wings for Autism allows participants to understand the airport and airplane experience in a low-stress, customized environment. This experience can make traveling by air a smoother and less overwhelming event for families in the future.
Additional information about Wings for Autism® and a registration page can be found at www.arcarizona.org. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at your convenience — firstname.lastname@example.org or (602) 290-1632.
