KeAndrea Anderson, a travel agent with Black Label Leisure, recently received certification from Special Needs Group, Inc., a global provider of special needs equipment for the travel industry, to specialize in special needs/accessible travel. To earn the distinction, Anderson participated in Special Needs Group’s in-depth certification program.
Through the program, agents gain an understanding of the special needs/accessible travel market. They learn about the best equipment to rent for special needs travel, ways to market special needs/accessible travel, and more.
Nationwide, one in seven persons has some form of disability, and one in five families is touched. By specializing in special needs/accessible travel, Anderson has the ability to help this large percentage of the population travel in an enjoyable, safe and efficient manner.
Anderson is a new travel agent and knew that she had to be able to work with Special Needs clientele because everyone deserves access to travel and to be able to enjoy it, regardless of ability. Anderson has previously worked with Persons with Special Needs as a Director of Healthcare for over 15 years.
“Through Special Needs’ courses, I not only learned how to assist individuals with special needs to enjoy travel, but I found some very valuable new ways to serve the needs of all of my clients,” said Anderson. “The population, as well as the travel industry itself, has undergone major changes in the past few years. By completing this program, I have the ability to stay on the cutting edge of these changes, and create opportunities for my clients.”
