If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it can be at times to travel to new places with children. But, imagine how much more difficult it is with an autistic child. Their needs and in some cases disabilities can make traveling quite an ordeal.
Beaches Resorts by Sandals is tackling this predicament head on. They are the only Autism Certified set of Family Resorts in the Caribbean. Their staff has been Autism trained to help families with these needs. Beaches Buddies are always close by looking out for the kids and helping them and the parents when needed. They proudly sponsor Sesame Street and feature “Amazing Art with Julia”. They have art projects for the children conducted by this sweet and curious 4 year old Sesame Street character with autism. Sometimes, just being with others (either parents or children) who know and understand what you’re going through can often make the trip worth while.
These resorts include so many amazing and fun things to do with your kids whether on land or in the water. And, with the aide of a staff trained to help immerse your child with autism into these new experiences, you can’t go wrong. They have two resorts in Jamaica (Negril and Ocho Rios) and one in Turks & Caicos. Call us to make the arrangements. We would love to see you and your family enjoy the beach with an Autism Certified staff.
