My husband & I have had our trip to NYC cancelled three times due to the pandemic.
We are now considering booking NYC along with our two children. (Previously, the children were going to stay at home with grandparents but this is no longer possible.
Our concern is, our 5 year old son has autism. He is diagnosed non-verbal but is making good progress & beginning to use single words 😀 he does not become to overwhelmed with sensory issues such as noise or lights either. Our son has travelled to Asia several times before & has coped well but we’ve not done a city break before.
I believe that our son’s diagnosis should not hinder his experiences, nor our experiences as a family but I am slightly apprehensive.
We understand taking the children will change the dynamics of our trip but I think it will be amazing for al of us.
I was just wondering if anyone had been in the same situation, taking their autistic child to NYC, or if anyone had any advice?!
