Every parent knows flying with kids isn't easy. Families who have children with autism face even a greater challenge.

A new program called "Navigating Autism" was held Saturday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The program is developed by Metropolitan Airports Commission, the Autism Society of Minnesota and Fraser, the state's largest provider of autism services.

The event helps families living with autism by going through every step to get on a plane.

The program is free and is held every month. More information is available here.
