Tennessee Welcomes the Ambassador of Autism Tourism…

The opportunity to move to the grand state of Tennessee became a need as I, the parent, understood the coming stages with my daughter’s strengths and challenges needed defined and specific guarantees… Family in this area made the process easier… Thus reassuring the decision being made. Yes, as a parent raising a child with visible and unseen challenges I must always prioritize her safety and future.

You bet… major research was done for the last 5 months. Phone calls. Social media leading the way as the guarantee to limitless sources of information.

What have we done? Take advantage of the beauty of the state. Utilize the power of nature to our favor. Be welcomed by the many activities and organizations in the area. Above all, we have not allowed the diagnosis to rule our life.

What did we find? A wide array of organizations providing services, activities and support to families raising individuals on the autism spectrum and more… Sooo impressed… Sooo diverse….

The Ambassador of Autism Tourism!

My daughter wants to travel. She wishes to discover the world. She says all the time, you went to China and you did not take me… not fair!!

We have read posts about families raising children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum who have succeeded planning trips. Yes, even with autism on board they were capable of enjoying a vacation. Above all, not allowing the diagnosis control the dynamics.

Here is our effort. We must share what we are learning and enjoying.

I am aware not everyone can do what we do, how we do it. The purpose here is not to compare since we have something to learn from all of you, I firmly believe that. The purpose is to share how we accept the awesome and the challenges of our day to day. Above all, how we seek quality of life.

Enjoy the latest posts…
