In this video, Katherine from Guiding Autism discusses some strategies she uses when travelling with her daughter Samara to help make the experience better for both of them. Katherine shows a visual presentation she put together for her daughter to help her mentally prepare for their upcoming trip, which includes maps and pictures of the destination.
Katherine also includes various options for activities to participate in on their trip, and asks Samara to help choose the activities she would like to do. This gets Samara excited for the activities, rather than nervous about them. Additionally, she found a pizza place which Samara likes near their destination, which is good for Samara as she has a familiar place to look forward to.
