Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 8.53.38 PMWings for All is an airport “rehearsal” where families with children who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism, go through a full airport experience, from entering the airport all the way through boarding a plane. The Austin events are a collaborative event¬†with The Arc of the Capital Area, The Arc of Texas, The Arc of the United States, The Autism Society of Central Texas, American Airlines, and the Transportation Safety Administration. We recently held the first Wings for All event at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on September 10th, and are excited to have more events to keep families flying comfortably.
