Wings for Autism
Wings for Autism® is an airport “rehearsal” specially designed for individuals with Autism spectrum disorders and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The program is designed to alleviate the stress that families who have a child with autism or intellectual/developmental disabilities experience when flying. It provides families the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane (no actual flight).
The Appleton “flight” on May 13th will feature an Allegiant Airbus 319 with 156 seats, allowing 78 families to participate.
Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible!
The Autism Society of Wisconsin and the Autism Society of the Fox Valley are proud to be part of the planning process for this exciting event hosted by the Appleton International Airport and created by The Arc of the United States. We hope to see you there!
