Wings For Autism

The Wings for Autism® program is designed as an opportunity to provide children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to have a “practice” opportunity to experience the sometimes challenging aspects of airline travel at an airport – parking and shuttling to the terminal, check-in, security, boarding the aircraft and interacting with airport personnel — to help ease potential stresses that the airport experience can cause with help from our partners BWI Airport, United Airlines, Fraport, Maryland Department of Transportation and the Transit Security Administration.

Coming to BWI in late 2018/early 2019

Created by Charles River Center, an affiliated chapter of The Arc, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Port Authority. Visit www.thearc.org/wings-for-autism.
