This week I have the pleasure of talking to author Dawn M Barclay.
She's the author of a book called; "Traveling Different: Vacation Strategies for Parents of the Anxious, the Inflexible, and the Neurodiverse."
It's basically the travel bible for those on the autism spectrum as well as those with mood/attention disorders. Anyone who has a child with such issues or knows someone who does will benefit from the advice contained in this book, plus the tips for special needs children can soothe the hiccups of any family's travel.
In a fascinating conversation she basically takes us through the preparation stage of a trip through the trip and then we talk a bit about the return home.
She talks us through how to best prepare your child for traveling and a new routine/change in environment.
Then we talk about the type of trip that works best for neurodivergent children, things to take into account when booking your trip/places to stay.
She gives soo many tips that I couldn't possibly list them all here. All to make the trip as stress free for both you and your kid.
It's a wonderfully educational conversation with someone who clearly knows what they're talking about.
You can find Dawn, and her book.
On her website
Of course, as we mentioned, you can pre-order the book everywhere and I'll remind you again when it comes out early August.
