My son was diagnosed with autism about five years ago. The doctor who delivered the news expected my husband and I to give into our emotions and fall apart. Instead, we booked a trip. Then we booked another and another and another.
Autism cases in the United States are on the rise. As such, many ski resorts are offering tailored programs introducing kids on the autism spectrum to skiing. Among these forward thinking ski resorts is Northstar at Tahoe, where my son participated in a lesson using an approach called Adaptive Skiing.
