Wings for Autism
January 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The fifth annual Wings for Autism takes place at Asheville Regional Airport. This free event provides an immersive, simulated airport experience for people on the autism spectrum and their families and caregivers. Participants will arrive at the airport, check in for a “flight,” go through security, wait at the gate, enjoy a meal, and board a plane for a pretend trip. Go online to register. Travel for people on the autism spectrum can be unfamiliar and potentially stressful. This event is designed to help those with autism feel more comfortable with the travel experience.
