Published on : Thursday, May 17, 2018

Ethiopian AirlinesEthiopian Aviation Academy (EAA) conducted a half-day Autism Awareness panel discussion on May 11, 2018 at EAA Auditorium under the theme “Flying with Autism”.

 

The event, which was held to mark Autism Awareness Month, aimed at celebrating the role of Ethiopian Airlines in easing travel stress for families and children with Autism by providing Autism awareness training on how to assist travelers with Autism for the Airline’s staff.

 

The discussion highlighted the need for a paradigm shift concerning children with autism as being differently abled rather than disabled. It also touched upon the signs exhibited by children with autism, the care they need to be provided with and also on how to create an inclusive learning environment for such children.

 

The panel discussion is part of CC&CT School’s initiatives to make air travel more accessible for passengers with Autism. EAA also plans to provide similar training for its new cadets and staff on yearly recurrent programs.
