Special Needs Travel
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The CDC also estimates that one in five Americans has a disability of some kind, another 8.7 million having limited mobility. Add to this the aging U.S. population and we have a significant group of people that could benefit from some accommodation and understanding. Trade Winds Travel has that understanding, and we are certified and trained to handle all aspects of traveling.
