Let’s face it, flying is almost never our favorite part of travel. We just want to get to our destination. Having a special needs child just complicates that further. Let’s look at some tips that might help.
- First, you are going to want to let everyone you can think of know that you are traveling with a special needs child. You will probably want to say something about your special needs child each time you speak to someone with your airline. Do this even if you don’t have a wheelchair. Hopefully the airline people will help you out.
- Using the bathroom is just a part of line. Airplane bathrooms are not accessible. Airport bathrooms are usually great. You are going to want to keep that in mind.
- ‘Bring lots of snacks. You can never be sure when you will be fed. And you also can not be sure whether the food will be good for your children.
