Rarely has a hotel collection taken such significant strides in the hospitality industry. It is a remarkable achievement for Karisma Hotels & Resorts to collaborate with Autism Double-Checked (ADC) and become the pioneer in implementing the Autism Passport. For those unaware, the Autism Passport is a valuable resource that allows for a seamless flow of communication between guests and staff members.

The Benefits

Through this passport people can easily share details, like challenges in communication, emotional triggers and useful coping methods. Also for those coming across the term Autism for the first time, this is as a condition that impacts communication skills, behavior and social interactions.

The implementation of this comprehensive document, which is conveniently available online, serves as a platform for visitors to effectively communicate their distinct requirements to Karisma Hotels, in addition to other certified airlines and airports.

In an Interview with CEO Esteban Velasquez, he expressed his profound gratitude and enthusiasm towards the partnership with Autism Double-Checked, acknowledging their leadership in providing autism-friendly travel services. He also highlighted how this collaboration reflects Karisma’s overarching goal of ensuring that all guests feel welcomed and supported during their stay.

Employee Training

It is worth mentioning that Karisma’s employees have received training to recognize and handle the difficulties encountered by guests with autism. Moreover Karisma certified establishments have taken an initiative by creating guest guides that offer detailed sensory details, for individuals, with diverse neurological needs guaranteeing a personalized and accommodating stay experience.

Co founder and CEO of Autism Double-Checked, Alan Day also added that careful planning and access to personalized information is crucial in making travel easier for individuals with autism. The Autism Passport, which provides essential information to hotel staff beforehand, serves as a “know before they show” guide and greatly enhances the overall guest experience from check-in to check-out.

Other valuable resources offered by Karisma for families with autism include the Autism Concierge program, where a dedicated contact is available to assist guests throughout their stay. Karisma’s portfolio of certified autism-friendly properties includes popular locations such as Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts in Riviera Maya and Punta Cana, Margaritaville Island Reserve properties in Cap Cana and Riviera Cancun, as well as Azul Beach Resort Riviera Cancun.

Autism Treatment and Advocacy

Organizations in other states are also advocating for the accessibility and affordability of Autism ABA therapy, which is a vital treatment. At Nevada Autism Center, we strive to offer high-quality ABA therapy services for individuals with autism and their families.
