Room requests for DS3 with ASD

Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you who have children with ASD have discovered helpful room requests. DS3 is pretty flexible for having ASD but he sometimes has fits where he doesn't want to control the volume of his voice. I'm just worried about his yelling bothering our neighbors.

Should I mention to the resort where we're staying (BCV) that we have a child with ASD? Should I request a room with as few neighbors as possible? Or am I overthinking this?

Thanks for any advice!

I don't think there are any rooms with less neighbors, But maybe a room at the end of a hall.. It costs nothing to ask

As a mom to an ASD.DS, you're overthinking it but that's what we do, right? Trying to plan for every possible scenario! I wouldnt worry too much about his noise level, heck typical kids are usually louder then my DS! We did BCV and loved it, have a great trip and don't forget to get your GAC
