We look forward to speaking with Champion Autism Network families to find the perfect vacation rental for them. It is our hope that families feel relaxed and comfortable while making incredible memories." Sara-Lauren Dozier, Guest Services Specialist.
“We are thrilled by and grateful for the support of our families by this fine group of people,” states Becky Large, Executive Director of Champion Autism Network. “With the official designation of Surfside Beach, South Carolina being named the ‘First Autism Friendly Travel Destination’ in 2016, the autism initiative is moving to the greater area. Adding a property management group, in addition to the Vacation Myrtle Beach resort properties, provides more options and supports we can offer our tourist families.”
About Champion Autism Network:
CAN is a 501c3 organization that aims to increase Autism Awareness and provide support to families effected by Autism. The mission is to reduce challenges and barriers to allow families with a child with Autism to have a “normal” family outing or experience, reducing sensory input and creating inviting environments for children with Autism, their parents and siblings, through sensory event planning, and to inspire action to support our families through Autism Awareness education and consulting engagements.
Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders – Autism Spectrum Disorders. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by communication difficulties, social and behavioral challenges, and repetitive behaviors. As of April 2018, estimated one in 59 children in the U.S. is on the Autism Spectrum and that number is increasing.
