CNN article on traveling with children who have special needs

Today, CNN published an article directed at parents of children with special needs about the benefits of traveling with their children.  I enjoyed reading this article and thought it made a wonderful point about how the benefits of traveling with children who have special needs outweigh any related challenges.  The author mentions a several tips with regards to traveling such as finding special events or locations that cater to the needs of their child like AMC's collaboration with the Autism Society to present Sensory Friendly Films, shares resources like TravelinWheels, and even goes into a discussion about accessibility.

The only complaint I have is that the media still does not seem to understand Person First language. The title of this article should be "Travel with children who have special needs..." and not "Travel with disabled kids...".
