Re-post~ Flying with a Special Needs Child

I often get asked the question of how Nick does flying on airplanes?  It’s not easy having a child with special needs, let alone Down syndrome and autism.  Since it’s prime vacation time for many families I thought a re-post of this blog might shed some light on how Nick does on airplanes…. How do you NAVIGATE?????


That’s what is in my noggin this week.  Enjoy and thank you for reading and sharing Nick’s world. 🙂
