This free kit helps kids with disabilities with air travel

airplane parked at airportMemorial Day was so early this year it caught me by surprise. If it’s summer already, I better get ready for vacations!

The Autism Program of Illinois, Have Dreams and The Hope Institute for Children and Families have come together to create aviation accessibility kits they say could make the trip from ticket counter, through security, on to the gate and into the air easier for people with disabilities.

The kits lay out the steps involved in moving through an airport in words and pictures. They were made with the help of the Chicago Department of Aviation but are intended for use at many other airports across the country. The site also has links to a medical accessibility kit and library accessibility kits.

You can download the aviation accessibility kits here for free – check them out!
