Wings for Autism Coming
to Louisville & Lexington Kentucky!
Wings for Autism® is one of The Arc’s newest national initiatives. This program allows for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other intellectual/developmental disabilities, as well as their families, to simulate the airport experience. This includes practice entering the airport, going through TSA security, waiting in the gate area, and boarding the plane (the plane will not take off). This event is free of change and will be coming to the Louisville International Airport on September 22nd and the Blue Grass Airport (LEX) on November 3rd!
Registration for the Louisville event is now closed. Registration for the Lexington event will open mid September.
