One of our amazing staff members, Michael Shashaty, had the pleasure of traveling on the Autism Cruise over the summer.
Prior to this summer, I had never been on a plane. Before that, I had visited only a handful of states. Traveling was not something I envisioned myself doing, and certainly not to another country.
Autism has provided me with many blessings in life: a career, friends, colleagues and a purpose. A few weeks ago, I found myself on the most breath-taking island in the world, swimming alongside fish in crystal blue lagoons and conversing with people from different parts of the world. All of this impossible without the talented, eccentric and intelligent children we accompanied.
Our cruise ship to The Bermuda Islands provided unique and humbling challenges to both the families and the professionals who were trusted with supporting our kiddos on a boat, at sea & in a different part of the world.
