Educational toy company, Plus-Plus will be joining the Wings for All® event taking place at the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport in support of children living with autism. The creators of Plus-Plus have found that their free-building products are a favorite of families living with autism and wanted to give back to the community in a meaningful way by partnering with this incredible event.
Wings for Autism®/Wings for All® are airport “rehearsals” specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The programs are designed to alleviate the stress that families who have a child with autism or intellectual/developmental disabilities experience when flying. It provides families the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane. Airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals, and other personnel also have the opportunity to observe, interact, and deliver their services in a structured learning environment.
Plus-Plus will be on hand for product giveaways and interviews about their new Plus-Plus Kidsport launch at GSP targeted for Summer 2019.
