SOAR 2018 Autism Society SE WI Event 

Looking forward to traveling with the family but need some help getting over the barriers that accompany airports and flight travel for you or your loved ones?

SOAR is an airport rehearsal program specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders or other intellectual/developmental disabilities, their families and aviation professionals. The program is designed to alleviate some of the stress that families that have one or more members with challenges experience when traveling by air.

Individuals and families have the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtain boarding passes, go through security and board a plane. Training is provided to the airport, airlines, Transportation Security Administration professionals and other personnel. This experience provides airport staff the opportunity to observe, interact and deliver their services in a structured learning environment.

If you are concerned about the ability of you or one of your family members traveling, this FREE program is for you.
Even if you have taken this session before it will be a great refresher! This year there will be a free take home travel book/social story & other helpful tools to make travel in the future even easier for your family! 

Sign up today! Only two sessions are offered and space is limited. Registration is available to family and friends of The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin. Membership not required. Due to limited seating on the planes, we are requesting individuals with a disability to attend with no more than one or two family members. 

Free parking provided by General Mitchell International Airport for event participant and volunteers.
