When my oldest son was diagnosed with autism.  I was simply unaware that the behaviors he was presenting were different from his neurotypical brother.  I didn’t know how much sensory overload and how scared of new things he was until he was diagnosed.  I thought our travels were over once I realized how difficult it was becoming to travel with him.  It wasn’t until my son came home from school one day and said he wanted to visit the National Mall. I realized that our travels didn’t have to stop because of the diagnosis, instead, they just needed to be modified to make traveling easier for him. At this point, I realized if I as a parent of a child with autism was struggling to travel and find the right accommodations for my child other families with special needs might be facing this same struggle.   ​

 

This is why I founded Lily and Magnolia Travel to help remove the stress and effort that comes with planning a vacation, especially if your family requires special considerations.  I want to help make your trip smooth and as painless as possible. I will help you find the right travel suppliers, airline carriers to fit your needs and travel destinations that are a good fit for your family. I’ll make sure you are able to enjoy the travel destination to the fullest because travel is for everyone.  Curious to learn how I can help you?
