Shownotes

Traveling can be challenging for children and adults on the spectrum. 87% of parents with autistic children, do not currently take family vacations. Changes in routine, crowds, new sights and sounds can make experiences difficult for them and their families.

We hope this episode, with Dawn Barclay, author of Traveling Different: Vacation Strategies for Parents of the Anxious, the Inflexible, and the Neurodiverse, will encourage more travel opportunities for you and your family.
