The Market Power of Autism

They say that there’s a market for everything and I think that they are right. One of the few advantages of having an autism epidemic is that there is now a hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida that is catering to parents of children with autism. When autism was rare, it was difficult for families to go on a vacation without feeling very self-conscious that they would bother other guests or that the hotel business would not appreciate their stay with them. Currently, there are so many families with children on the spectrum that we have hotels actually catering to us and competing for our business. What a turnaround!

An autism service provider has actually certified the
TradeWinds Island Resorts with wonderful weather as being Autism Friendly! This resort is now trying to court our business. What a difference a decade makes! We need to support the hotel, for altruistic reasons only, of course!
