    four times a year? so does that mean he stays at the school and comes home four times a year? I googled the school to try & get an idea of their curriculum semesters but couldn't figure it out

    good for the staff at Heathrow - that airport is a huge well-oiled machine IMO

    Flying is stressful,I can imagine flying with a person that has autism would be an ordeal.I will try to keep this thought while I am losing my patience at the airport.
