The Wings for Autism® program is an airport “rehearsal” created to alleviate some of the stress that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families experience when traveling by air.
This event is open to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Triangle and beyond who seek a safe, but realistic, experience of traveling through a busy airport. More than 160 participants from the greater Raleigh-Durham area are expected to attend the event.
