Today there are more vacation options for families of children with special needs than ever before. If you’re ready to get away for your summer vacation we have some proven tips to make your planning go smoothly:
- Choose the lodging that’s best for your child- Take your child’s specific needs into account when choosing where to stay. Condos and rental cottages offer fewer amenities but feel more like home than hotels. If you opt to stay in a hotel you should contact the reservation staff to select the ideal room to meet your needs.
- Plan ahead- Spending time ahead of your vacation to research accessible restaurants, attractions, and entertainment will help you plan a successful vacation. Call ahead to find out more information and seek out other families of children with special needs for advice.
- Be flexible- Even though a plan is important you should also remain flexible as situations change. Stay mindful of your child’s needs and choose activities that are fun for the entire family.
