Wings for Autism is coming to Myrtle Beach! Register Now!

Wings for Autism is coming to Myrtle Beach, and the South Carolina Autism Society is proud to be a sponsor!

Wings for Autism is an airport “rehearsal” specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The program is designed to alleviate the stress that families who have a child with autism experience when flying. It provides families the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane. Airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals, and other personnel also have the opportunity to observe, interact, and deliver their services in a structured learning environment.

The Wings for Autism event will take place on November 12, 2016 at Myrtle Beach International Airport. The event will begin at 5:00 pm.

Space is limited. A total of 76 participants will be permitted to attend the event. This registration form will allow one family member to accompany one individual with disabilities.
