Wings for Autism in the News

What is Wings for Autism/Wings for All?

Wings for Autism®/Wings for All™ are airport “rehearsals” specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The programs are 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. Airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals, and other personnel also have the opportunity to observe, interact, and deliver their services in a structured learning environment. Read more.

The Arc’s Wings for Autism®/Wings for All™ is sponsored in part by The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc. The goal of the Flutie Foundation is to help families affected by autism to live life to the fullest. Through programs and partnerships the foundation helps people with autism get access to care; lead more active lifestyles; and grow toward adult independence.
