Ask the Nurse: Summer Traveling Tips
If you are flying, you will need to consider additional items. How will the airline handle your child’s equipment? What can come on the plane and what cannot. Considerations will need to be made for oxygen, medications and food. Are treatments, and/or special feedings, or meals, required while on the plane? To provide safe air travel with your special needs child, you should contact the airline. Check out their websites or call them for more information.
