Nicole Thibault, Producer for Spectrum Travel Social Story Videos and Autism Travel Consultant
Nicole Thibault created Spectrum Travel Social Story Videos in January 2017 with her own family in mind. She has three boys, two with Special Needs. Her family loves to travel and due to their sons' disabilities, they've had to overcome many obstacles to be successful with their vacations. She knew that her own personal travel experiences, combined with her years of working in the travel industry, she could assist others with their family's travel plans, making it easier and less stressful for them to travel with their children with Autism.
Nicole has earned her title of Certified Autism Travel Professional from the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards. She's also a member of the Family Travel Association and is on the 2017 Advisory Board for the Family Travel Agent Forum. Nicole also is an advocate for Autism Travel, and attends several public speaking engagements per year to speak about Special Needs Travel, including the 2015 & 2016 Travel Industry Exchange, the Family Travel Association's 2017 Summit, the 2017 Family Travel Advisor Forum, and will be speaking at the 2018 New York Times Travel Show in New York City.
As the Producer for the Spectrum Travel Social Story Videos, Nicole conceptualizes and creates the destination's "shot lists" for each video. She then reviews these with Jason Thibault, STSSV's Director and Editor, and the consults with the destination for approval. Once the Shot List is complete, Nicole works with the Hosts of the show to prepare them for filming.
During filming, Nicole and Jason follow the approved, pre-scripted shot lists to film the videos. Once filming is complete, Jason and Nicole work to edit the line of social story videos and submit them for the destination's review. When the social story videos are complete, the videos are housed on the Spectrum Travel Social Story Videos' YouTube channel, website, and can also be housed on the destination's website. Videos can also be shared on social media outlets.
