Autistic Students Take Flight in Pilot Program

Autism Awareness News Florida Autism News Videos

May 16, 2013- "Autistic Students Take Flight in Pilot Program"- Elementary school children on the autism spectrum recently had the opportunity to get acquainted with the sights and sounds of an airplane without ever leaving the ground. The Autism in Flight program was the first event in Florida that allows children on the autism spectrum to become familiar with the accommodations of the airport and airplane before they ever go on vacation. The program allows parents the opportunity to see how their children will react to the unfamiliarity of traveling to the airport, checking luggage, going through security, and eventually boarding the plane.
