|April is Autism Awareness Month and in this show, Nicole Thibault is going to talk about how this relates to travel and to travel professionals. Most families with autistic children believe that it is not possible to take a vacation because of the challenges inherent in traveling with their autistic children.
A well-informed travel professional, a travel professional who becomes a certified autism travel professional, can change the world for these families. Nicole talks about some of the challenges and the resources available to overcome these travel challenges for families with autistic children. Now is a great time to take the certification course and become a certified autism travel professional.
