Emirates' Check In Facilities In Dubai Get Autism Center Certification


(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor)

Dubai: Emirates has achieved a Certified Autism CenterTM Designation for all of its Dubai Check In facilities - Emirates City Check-in
and Travel Store in DIFC, Emirates Cruise Check In - Port Rashid, Emirates Cruise Check In - Dubai Harbour and Emirates City Check-In Ajman, in addition to the Emirates' dedicated hub in Terminal 3 at Dubai International Air port
(DXB).

Dubai: The certification, awarded by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) ensures that all Emirates facilities in Dubai have taken a significant step towards making travel
more inclusive and accessible to neurodiverse customers, meeting criteria required for a comfortable and sup port
ed travel
experience.

As part of the designation, Emirates employees at the various facilities underwent specialized training on autism and sensory awareness, to equip them with the understanding and skills to address needs of autistic travel
lers or those with sensory sensitivities, along with their families. Comprehensive facilities audits were conducted across the locations, measuring all sensory inputs in public areas such as sound levels, lighting, and potential sights and smells to develop sensory guides, empowering travel
lers to make informed decisions and choose the environment that best suits their needs and preferences.

IBCCES also created AutismTravel, a free online resource for families that lists certified destinations and connects families to other resources and each other. Each destination listed on the site has met the CAC requirements.

IBCCES provides a series of certifications that empower professionals to be leaders in their field and improve the outcomes for the individuals they serve. These programs are recognized around the world as the leading benchmark for training and certification in the areas of autism and other cognitive disorders.
