Wings for Autism® and Wings for All®, one of The Arc's newest national initiatives, are airport "rehearsals" specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and people with other intellectual/developmental disabilities, their families and aviation professionals. Originated by the Charles River Center, a local chapter of The Arc, Wings for Autism® and Wings for All® are designed to alleviate some of the stress that families who have a child with autism experience when traveling by air. The programs provides families with the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane. Wings for Autism and Wings for All also give airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals and other personnel the opportunity to observe, interact and deliver their services in a structured, learning environment. This experience is equally useful for families that have a member with other intellectual or developmental disabilities that are concerned about the ability of their family member to travel.
