As part of an initiative to make travel more inclusive, Airbnb has launched a new collection of online experiences across the globe for neurodiverse guests. From an inclusive street dance class in the United Kingdom to a trip to meet therapy llamas and alpacas in the United States, all 12 online experiences were designed specifically with neurodiversity — referring to variations in how the human brain functions and including people with autism, dyslexia, and attention deficit disorders, among others — in mind. 

The online experiences cater to a variety of individual tastes, requirements, and ages, providing a way for friends and family to connect from wherever they are amid quarantine. Many of the sessions are Social Impact, too, which means that all proceeds will be donated to non-profit organizations. What’s more, guests could receive $15 off their first booking from now until May 1 with the code EXPLORE at checkout. 

Airbnb is also providing coupon codes to SeeAbility, The Tower Project, The Institute for Effective Education, and Disability Sports Coach for the vital work they do for the neurodiverse community. “People with lived experience of disabilities tell me every day how isolating the pandemic has been,” Scott Watkin BEM, SeeAbility’s head of engagement, said. “I welcome this new initiative and am delighted that a more accessible online world is now available for the thousands of people with disabilities through Airbnb’s global community.”
