Okay, so yes, it is somewhat more difficult to travel with a child who has special needs. It can also be rewarding and fun. It all depends on how you look at things. Today we are going to look at some of the challenges a family with a special needs child may face.
- First off, not all airline workers are going to know all of the rules, especially when it comes to special needs children. Some workers are going to do everything that they can to help you. Others don’t seem to care about anything except what they absolutely have to do to keep their job. I’ll be honest, I am unable to sit in one of those aisle chairs that they have. I can not sit up. My wheelchair is pretty specialized. People do not like to see Mom carrying me to my seat, but that’s the way we have to to do it. Your child may have to be on a special diet. You will want to call ahead to figure that out.
- Hardly anyone would question an older person who was needing help. You will find that many people are going to go out of their way to be helpful and kind.
