My Special Needs Network

A network to share best practices for children with special needs

Traveling by car this summer? You're not alone, but, if you're traveling with a special needs child, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. Stop that feeling by planning ahead. Make a list, and check it twice. Think about your daily routines and the items you might not be able to easily locate while away (feeding devices, special foods, medicines, etc). You might also want to consider car entertainment (toys, snacks, drinks, DVDs, etc). Give yourself plenty of travel time to account for extra stops and breaks from the car. Don't forget to check and see that your child's car seat is comfortable for a long trip. The Abilitations catalog offers many travel-by-car options from the Special MPS Tomato Car Seat and the Therapedic"! Positioning Seat to the E-Z-ON Adjustable Vests. Always make sure your car seats are properly installed, and enjoy your vacation. Have a safe and happy trip!
