Traveling Differently- Resources

Are you a travel business or organization that offers assistance for those who travel differently? I would love to add you to my new resource page here! And, if you are a traveler with unique challenges – please let me know about your experiences or resources to be included in this forum! THANK YOU!

I know that not everyone can travel the same.  Some people may use mobility devices, such as wheelchairs or walkers, while others may have sensory challenges (including Deaf or Blind). And, then there are those who have unique challenges such as Autism or cognitive delays. This resource section is to be of help to all and the comment section is open for you to add your own links to resources you have found helpful.

Please scroll to the bottom for our very popular pocket- sized communication chart for emergencies.
