Wings for Autism - Expressions of Interest

To better support families in order to prepare for airport travel, “Wings for Autism” was established following a conversation with Perth Airport centred around increasing inclusion and participation for all people with disabilities with a focus on Autism.


As Autism is often an unseen disability, many people with Autism and their families were having a very negative airport experience leading to families avoiding a holiday that involved plane travel. The individuals and families whom we engaged with identified two main barriers to airport participation: firstly, the very overwhelming sensory environment and waiting times; secondly, the limited knowledge of staff being able to understand Autism and thus being able to provide appropriate support.
Based on these conversations, we started to develop our “Wings for Autism” program.
