When Danny was diagnosed with Dandy-Walker malformation as a baby, we never imagined that we would be flying to Mexico 17 years later. Just going out to a restaurant seemed like a major undertaking! But local outings led to state parks, then road trips, then short flights (after things settled down with the TSA, lol). We took it step by step, and were able to go farther and do more with each excursion. And with every trip, Danny’s world expanded; we have often remarked on some new social or communication milestone that Danny developed while we were traveling. Vacation time is quality family time!
On this site, we will share accessibility and medical travel tips and ideas with you so that you can experience the wonders of travel with your family. Of course, our first piece of travel advice is to start small and slowly work up to larger trips. We will show you how to put plans into place that can be scaled up as vacations become longer or more complex. The important thing is that we give our special needs children a chance to experience the kinds of things that all kids enjoy doing. So let’s get started on our journey together!
