"This service should allow families who might otherwise be reluctant to travel with a challenging child to do so without concern for that child's behavior during the trip, and with the knowledge that they and their child will receive the specialized attention needed to make this trip as easy as possible".

Autism Escapes will serve as an Angel Network for families of children with autism. Its primary purpose is to arrange air travel on private jets for families in need of medical care for their children.

Many individuals affected by autism have co-morbid medical problems, such as seizures and gastrointestinal disorders. There are a limited number of physicians and centers nationwide that have the experience and expertise in treating autism and often-related medical complexities. Many of the behavioral problems associated with autism render commercial air travel difficult, if not impossible, for many affected individuals. Our organization depends on donations from individuals, grants from foundations, fund raising activities and donations of private jet hours from individual aircraft owners and corporations. In addition, ground transportation companies, hotel and other travel providers will be supporting this organization.

In the future, we hope to be able to provide respite travel opportunities for affected families.
