Autism Takes Flight!

  • April 26th at the Wilmington International Airport.
  • Availability is limited! Please contact Coastal Autism Solutions at 919-630-8764 or by April 14th to reserve your family's assigned arrival time.

UNCW's Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program, Coastal Autism Solutions, and Cape Fear ABA are partnering with Wilmington International Airport to offer families of children with special needs a unique opportunity to experience the airport. The process of going to the airport and taking a flight can be overwhelming for any family, but there are unique challenges when bringing a child with special needs. This event will provide families with the chance to practice the entire process, including getting a boarding pass, checking a bag, going through security, waiting at the gate, and viewing a plane. Board Certified Behavior Analysts will be there to provide families with assistance, tips for success, and materials they can take home for future use.
