I am pleased to announce my Certification completion with Special Needs Group!
As a Certified Accessible Travel Advocate®, I am now able to the meet the requests of the special needs, mobility challenged, and mature market segments.
Special Needs Group, Inc. (www.specialneedsgroup.com), a global provider of special needs equipment for the travel industry, to specialize in special needs/accessible travel. To earn the distinction, I participated in Special Needs Group’s in-depth online 3 module Certification Program.
Nationwide, one in seven persons has some form of disability, and one in five families is touched. By specializing in special needs/accessible travel, I have the ability to help this large percentage of the population travel in an enjoyable, safe and efficient manner.
Why I Decided to Take this Certificaiton
As some of you may already know, on January 14, 2021 (my birthday actually) my father had a stoke. He has overcome so many "opportunities", as we like to call them. Almost two years later, he is now taking his first vacation since pre-stoke. It's a BIG vacation for him because it's also his very first cruise AND his birthday cruise!
However, planning this vacation wasn't easy. The first "opportunity" we had to work though was his mobility. He wanted to have a his wheelchair, but didn't want to lug it all the way from Denver to Miami. Enter the famous mobility scooter! Special Needs Group can has one delivered to your cabin, so it's waiting for you on embarkation day!
The second "opportunity" was sleeping arrangements. My dad cannot sleep comfortably on a standard bed. Special Needs Group is also able to deliver a recliner chair to the cabin!
Taking this certification course and connecting with Special Needs Group / Special Needs At Sea has been so valuable throughout the planning process. I can't wait to tell you about our on-board experience next month!
If you are traveling on a Cruise or Land-Based Vacation and need mobility equiptment, oxygen, and/or special needs equiptment Reach out to me for any assistance!
