The goal of this desensitisation program is to overcome an avoidance pattern by gradually exposing the person to the airport and flight environment until it can be tolerated. This will be challenging for the individual at first to deal with, but gradually, most will be able to tolerate their first flight. The first step would be to try a story detailing the plan and flight at Sim2do this is to give it a chance of suiting your child's preferences. It may be to just read the plan over several days with them.
