Packing for a Summer Trip

I know that a lot of you will be packing up your cars this summer and driving to your vacation destinations. So today, I’m making a list that may help organize you for a trip with your little ones with special needs.

The thing about my autistic children is that they are constantly changing. Things that they don’t like and things that they do. But here is my general list that you can use to help you organize each time before you start packing for a trip.

I usually save all of my lists in a binder too, that way I can kind of see what notes or additions I did to a prior trip or a trip similar from the year before.

Happy Travelling and Stay Safe!
