Flying with Autism - What to Expect: TSA Precheck & Screening Tips

A little about me, I am an incredibly passionate Certified Autism Travel Professional (CAPT) who specializes in autism travel. Although I adore helping families of all kinds, I am most enthusiastic regarding assisting families like mine as I am a mother of two awesome teenagers who happen to both be on the autism spectrum. Both of my children are amazing and are as different and unique as fingerprints. Making memories and traveling has been and continues to be a priority to expose my children to not only the things that they love but things that help them learn and grow! Traveling has always been a passion of mine, but it hasn't always been easy. I have learned a lot in the last 16 years about myself as well as my children. Which has helped me become the advocate I am today for individuals on the autism spectrum and their loved ones.

If you would like an advocate on your side to assist you with the planning of your next vacation, you have come to the right place. The best part is, if you book a vacation package with me - you will not pay a penny more than if you booked direct, however, the value of the services that I provide my clients is truly priceless!
