A Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP) is a professional who has undergone extensive training to understand and cater to the unique travel needs of individuals with autism and their families. They are educated about the types of challenges an autistic individual might face while traveling, and receive specialized training to plan trips that are cognitive-, sensory-, and emotionally-friendly.
Here are a few ways a CATP can benefit our clients:
1. Expertise in Autism-Friendly Travel: CATPs are trained to identify autism-friendly destinations, accommodations, and activities that reduce stress for both the autistic individual and their families, ensuring the most enjoyable trip possible.
2. Personalized Planning: CATPs recognize that every autistic person is unique, with different strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes. Thus, they offer personalized planning based on the autistic individual's specific needs and preferences.
3. Safety Measures: The safety of clients is of paramount importance to a CATP. They ensure all elements of the trip, including accommodations and transport, adhere to the necessary safety standards for individuals with autism.
4. Accessible Experience: CATPs work with service providers to create accessible experiences, ensuring no one is sidelined because of their cognitive differences.
