Do you have a child or adolescent with a disability who has never been on an airplane?

Join Lewis University’s Occupational Therapy Program for “Ready to Fly” on April 1 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Is your child or adolescent scared of airplanes or the airport? Maybe you’ve had a bad travel experience?  If you’re avoiding travel or worried about traveling by plane as a family, this event may help.

Ready to Fly participants will practice:

  • Packing a suitcase
  • Interacting with ticketing
  • Going through security
  • Boarding/exiting an airplane
  • Picking up their luggage

The event is free. Seating is limited.

Reserve your boarding pass by March 29. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
