Travel Trade Guide to Welcoming Autistic Guests


We are pleased to invite members to a CPD accredited training course on welcoming autistic guests, hosted by Willy Wonka Travel and Kimel Solutions.

In an IBCCES survey of 1,000 autism parents, 87% of respondents said that they do not take holidays as a family, but 93% said they would if autism-friendly options were available. With industry and government working together to make the UK the most accessible destination by 2025, Nic Lander, Director, will provide an insightful introduction using first-hand experience as a neurodivergent family on how to build an inclusive, innovative, and more understanding organisation.

Developed with, and approved by the neurodivergent community, this inspiring session will bring a new and progressive strength-based approach to neurodivergent training. Whether you want a refresher or you’re starting from scratch this session will bring together a range of perspectives and explore practical ways to make your venue more welcoming, accessible and inclusive to people with autism.

The course will cover:

  • A thorough introduction to neurodiversity
  • Famous autistic people
  • Current workplace legislation and policy
  • Barriers for the autistic community when travelling
  • Understanding behaviours
  • Communication – the first step of positive relationships

By the end of the session you will have a greater understanding of neurodiversity, developed a fool-proof strategy to build better relationships with the neurodivergent community, and be able to offer real alternatives to the traditions that often restrict and impede neurodivergent people.

There will also be an opportunity to raise any questions during a Q&A session and all attendees will receive a CPD accredited certificate of attendance.
