Castaway Dream Travel
As a Certified Autism Travel Professional, I have knowledge, training and experience to assist individuals and families in planning vacations that accommodate those with autism, spectrum disorders and/or other disability and accessibility needs. I understand that you might find travel stressful or challenging but I know how to plan, recommend and arrange a variety of travel options with suppliers that make travel comfortable for families who need more assistance. I believe working closely with your family allows us to create the most ideal travel plan that will meet your specific needs. We will explore travel that has previously worked for your family as well as trips that have proven to be challenging and find sensory friendly activities that everyone can enjoy.
Once we determine the very best travel itinerary, we will decide if there are parts of your trip that should be experienced prior to the actual vacation. We can create social stories, plan a trial run of the airport experience or even plan activities to be practiced prior to travel. We will also talk about the availability of sensory time outs and exit strategies if the vacation fun becomes overwhelming.
I am certified through the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards and continue to update my knowledge through supplier training, tours and visits to sensory-friendly destinations myself.
