Well done TA for creating this helpful forum.
Our son in nineteen and a half and has learning difficulties. Basically he has a lot of trouble reading, coping with more than one or two instructions at the one time and gets easily confused etc etc. He is a shy (unless he knows a person well and feels comfortable being around them), gentle soul who is not at all interested in drinking, partying or rowdy places.
We have always travelled as a family, however our son would love to go to places like the USA (Disneyland) and Africa, Europe and Egypt. We would love to be able to accompany him, but we are limited with our time and finances, plus it would be good for him to become more independant and social with others more his age.
Does anyone know of any travel companies that operate tours for young people with disabilities? Sort of like a Contiki type tour, but with much smaller numbers and with caring, gentle tour staff who will look after and guide these young people.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated
