April is Autism Awareness Month

Holiday Inn Resort becomes a Designated Be Friendlier Destination

Autism is a developmental disability and complex mental condition. Often individuals with autism find it difficult to communicate and interact with other people. But being able to have fun, safe, and memorable experiences as a family is just as important to these families as any other.

In recognition of Autism Awareness Month., we are very excited to be partnering with Be Friendlier this year to create more awareness and acceptance to families with a developmental disability and to encourage that respect and acceptance in our resorts and hotels staff as well. Every family deserves the right to have a carefree and great vacation, and that is exactly what we want to help provide.

The Holiday Inn is a Designated Be Friendlier Destination

Be Friendlier focuses training on awareness and safety issues that we know those with a developmental disability diagnosis, such as autism, often deal with. A trained and well-prepared resort property will offer a more positive experience for a family that faces some of these unique challenges.Aimee Allenback – Owner, Be Friendlier, LLC

April is Autism Awareness Month at the Holiday Inn ResortThis partnership helps us achieve these goals by providing our team with training to better understand developmental disabilities, sensitivities, and the unique situations that our staff may experience. Over 15% of families have a child with a developmental disability, and we are here to support those families and accept them with open arms. As an example, through our partnership with Be Friendlier, upon request, we will provide safety kits for these families to provide a better sense of safety in their room.

All families should feel welcome to vacation in the beautiful panhandle of Florida without the fears of stigmas. With the Be Friendlier designation in place, the Holiday Inn Resort is now fully prepared to extend that invitation to families who may have not felt welcome or safe to do so in the past,” says Allenback

With these safety kits, we want families to feel more secure, safe, and relaxed during their stay and know that we are here to assist them. This may seem like a little thing, but the peace of mind it provides is reassuring for these families.

Another cool item provided by Be Friendlier is temporary tattoo kits; also available upon request. These tattoos allow our guests to place their room numbers or phone numbers on their child’s arm if the special needs individual gets lost or wanders, we can easily reunite them with their families. It is our hope, to provide a better sense of security to these families during their stay than they would normally feel when traveling.

Safety Kits include:

• Corner guards
• “STOP” prompt signs
• Outlet covers
• Door alarm

Temporary Safety Tattoo Kits Include:

• Three waterproof temporary tattoos
• Three alcohol wipes
• Marker
