Books, Apps and Activities to Help Special Needs Children Prepare for Air Travel
The first trip on an airplane can be exciting but also intimidating. Often books are a great way of preparing children for an unknown experience. Books about air travel do not necessarily need to be geared toward special needs children but can be helpful for all children preparing for their first flight. In addition to helping children with special needs, the following books would also be beneficial for an anxious child who wants to understand what to expect.
