Welcome to A million senses – Unique holidays for unique people
Being an autism professional is definitely overwhelming, rewarding and challenging. Spending the past 20 years close to autistic people and their families, one stops thinking only how to help them overcome their everyday struggles, and starts inventing ways to make their lives wonderful.
At least that was the case for us, three autism professionals from the Greek island of Chios, who spent days and nights thinking of amazing things families with a member with ASD are missing because they are not supported enough. Holidays was for sure one of those things.
These families, have to overwork to achieve everyday tasks that are easy for other families, like getting ready for school or going to the playground. Many of them feel that they don’t deserve to go on holidays and if they do, they find support for their autistic member only in special camps. While the camp is an amazing experience, the whole family cannot spend their holidays together.
There was our idea – To design holidays for the whole family, fully adapted to the needs of the member with ASD.
We combined our expertise and everything that Greece offers, nature, culture and great weather all year long, and here we are - A million senses, holidays for individuals with ASD and their families. Our programs, for personalized and group holidays, include recreational activities for the member in the autism spectrum so that the whole family can spend time together and parents can rest and relax knowing that their child is in the trusting hands of autism professionals.
There is no doubt that this is just the beginning. Soon, A million senses will create programs for adults and make Greece a 100% autism friendly destination. Follow our travels and stories in amillionsenses.com and in our social media.
