The American Airlines Abilities and Bridges Employee Business Resource Groups, in collaboration with the HollyRod Foundation, Brendan’s Flight Experience, The Gentry Foundation for Autism, Hatching Hope Foundation and AT&T, will be hosting a travel rehearsal event at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) on October 6th. This event is designed to alleviate some of the stress that families who have a child with Autism, intellectual or developmental disabilities experience when traveling by air. It will be realistic and provides families with the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security, and boarding the plane.
This event is complimentary and is limited to the first 280 participants that register. Members who would normally travel with your child are welcome to participate. To Register for the Event: Please RSVP by clicking on this link: https://goo.gl/forms/yQofXTD6zRLN605h1

As a friendly reminder, all adults will need a Government issued I.D. to clear TSA Security the day of the event.
Feel free to bring any items that your child would normally take on a flight to help ensure a successful experience (i.e. IPAD’s, talkers, service dogs, sensory items, blankets, ear plugs, headphones, books, etc.). We will confirm your attendance and follow up with additional information as it becomes available. We look forward to sharing this experience with you and your family.

Each year, thousands of people from across the globe attend the NDSC Annual Convention. For most, it’s to hear the latest information from world-renowned experts. For others, it’s a great vacation. However, for nearly all, there’s the one-of-a-kind NDSC “giant family reunion” feeling that permeates the convention weekend.
Meet with providers to answer your questions, or check out the panels where you can compare different programs side by side.

Please join us in our efforts to make the SAGE Expo all that it can be and more.

The Mid-Cities summit will conclude with break-out sessions with each city’s Neighborhood Patrol Officers (NPO).
