In this episode, I explore the first city to become a certified autism city, through the IBCCES.  My family was going to go check out this city later this year but due to the global pandemic, I decided in an abundance of caution to postpone our trip until later next year.  We might go for my oldest son’s 10th birthday, I can’t believe I said that what happened to the time?!?!  Anyway, let’s take a look at this city that is paving the way for the future of special needs travel! Mesa. AZ is a destination you may want to consider visiting especially if you have a loved one on the autism spectrum or a client with a loved one on the spectrum!
