Vacations seem like a really good idea because you get to bond as a family and spend quality time with each another. If on the other hand, a member of your family is autistic then you have to be careful while making plans. You have to add their needs and choose places where your autistic child gets to enjoy his/her time as well. Choosing autism-friendly places is a bit difficult because not every autistic person is the same, so you have put real thinking into deciding a place where your child feels safe and happy.
Children with autism tend to take a longer time with adjusting to new places and meeting new people. It can get difficult for them to get adjusted in noisy and crowded areas. You need to find a place which will be stress and anxiety free for your child. Boarding the airplane is half the struggle because you have to stand in lines and more than often children with autism don’t like bright lights. One thing you can do to overcome their fear and help them adjust to the idea of airports is to enroll them in classes which rehearse them in going to airports.
Beaches Resorts have a fully trained staff with certificates regarding the care of people with autism. Such trained professionals make life easier for the family because they know that their child will be treated the way he/she should be.
Kid camps and care per single child is often offered at Beaches resorts. Your child can be left alone with professionals who can babysit while you and your significant other go on a date. Kid camps offer amazing activities that your child can be a part of. Sesame Street has taken the initiative by introducing Julia, a puppet who has autism and who offers art classes for kids staying in the resort. This art class can help your child pass time, express themselves and your child can enjoy playing with colors.
Often times children with autism also have food allergies. Beaches Resorts unique ‘culinary concierge’ will work with you through your whole vacation to make sure the food your child eats is safe and fun.
Beaches Resorts have beaches, pools and beautiful gardens that your child can potentially love. Any child, with or without autism, can enjoy tranquil nature, birds, marine animals and more.
