Airports Work To Help Those With Autism, Other Hidden Needs
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Getting to the airport, through security to the gate and on the plane can be stressful for anyone. But it can be especially challenging for people with dementia, autism or other disabilities that may not be apparent to those around them.
To help, Raleigh-Durham International Airport is introducing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program. Developed in the United Kingdom, the program uses lanyards, pins and bracelets decorated with sunflowers to discreetly indicate that a person may need special assistance or is ready and able to provide that assistance.
