Travelling can be a very stressful and challenging time for neurodivergent children. Changes to routine, new environments, strange food and lots of sensory overload! So, in an effort to make travelling a more pleasurable experience, we asked our fantastic private facebook group, of over 6,000 parents/carers and professionals, what their top tips were for travelling with neurodivergent children. We hope their tips prove useful if you're off on your travels this summer 😎☀You may also find this link useful, 'Autism – what help can you expect from airlines?'. It also links through to a list of all the special assistance you can expect at various airports. www.aph.com/community/holidays/autism-airlines-what-help-can-you-expect-from-airlines/Ten tips for travelling with autistic and neurodiverse children - www.thetimes.co.uk/travel/advice/ten-tips-for-travelling-with-autistic-and-neurodiverse-children ...
